Theatre Guild stages 'Nuncrackers' this weekend

The hilarious Sisters of Mount Saint Helen's return to the Morehead Theatre Guild stage this weekend for the first time in nearly a decade, as the MTG presents Nuncrackers: The Nunsense Christmas Musical.

Performances of Nuncrackers are scheduled tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the St. Claire Regional Outreach Center, at the corner of Second Street and Hargis Avenue. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased at CoffeeTree Books in the Morehead Plaza or at the door.

Nuncrackers is the fourth show in Dan Goggin's series of Nunsense musicals to be produced by the Morehead Theatre Guild, the first since 1999. The play is presented as the first television special taped in the cable access studio built by Reverent Mother in the convent basement. Filled with several original songs and typical Nunsense humor, the Morehead Theatre Guild is certain Nuncrackers will make you laugh and maybe tug at your heartstrings, said Lesley Lewis, the play's director.

The cast for Nuncrackers includes Sandra Norden as Reverend Mother, Marilyn Freidhof as Sister Mary Hubert, Cara Ryver as Sister Robert Anne, Mary Lou Forman as Sister Mary Paul (a.k.a Amnesia), Joe Sartor as Father Virgil Manly Trott and Kathy Cornett as Sister Mary Leo. Four Mount Saint Helen's School students are played by E.B. Skinner, Christian Lewis, Andi Sharp and Cameron Mace.

Genevieve Jenkins is the accompanist for this musical comedy.
