Fantabulous Nuncrackers musical coming July/Aug

Nuncrackers, the Nunsense Christmas musical, promises a cracker night of music, songs, shenanigans and laughs, when we bring it to the stage in July/August. 

Our original cast of Sisters of Hoboken from Nunsense (staged in 2019) will be back in their habits at Mount Saint Helen's Convent. They are Jennie Tonzing, Carol Fogg, Jess Dolley and Lisa Hearnden-Jones, joined in this production by new sister Allison Whytcross, young Father Virgil, played by Phil White, and four talented youngsters.

This is the fourth Nunsense musical written by Dan Goggin and our show is directed by Debbie Fraser. 

Performances are on Friday 26 July (evening), Saturday 27 July (matinee and evening); Friday 2 August (evening), Saturday 3 August (matinee and evening) and Sunday 4 August (matinee). Matinees start at 2pm, and evening shows at 7.30pm. 

Tickets are on sale at https://www.trybooking.com/events/landing/1233930. The show includes some of your favourite carols and lots of audience participation. Perfect for your group to celebrate Christmas in July!

The show is set during a TV Christmas special being taped in the cable access studio built by Reverend Mother in the convent basement. 

Of course, many challenges arise, not least the presents under the convent Christmas tree going missing. The nuns are joined by Father Virgil and four of Mount Saint Helen's most talented students, to navigate the mishaps while thoroughly entertaining us all.
