The Center for the Arts Presents ‘Nuncrackers’


Nuncrackers is set to open Friday, December 2 and runs through Sunday, December 18

Mark David Williams, Artistic Director, shares, “’In the busyness of the holiday season it’s important to take some time to relax and laugh. That is what Nuncrackers will do for you! Come and get in the Christmas spirit with these hilarious Nuns. You never know what could go wrong…”

The Nunsense Christmas Musical, Nuncrackers, is presented as the first TV special taped in the Cable Access Studio built by Reverend Mother in the convent basement. It stars the nuns you love, plus Father Virgil, and four of Mount Saint Helen’s most talented students. Featuring all new songs including “Twelve Days Prior to Christmas”, “Santa Ain’t Comin’ to Our House”, “We Three Kings of Orient Are Us”, and “It’s Better to Give than to Receive”, this show is filled with typical Nunsense humor, some of your favorite carols, and a “Secret Santa” audience participation. This Nunsense Christmas Show will make you laugh, and maybe tug at your heartstrings. It’s the perfect way to ensure that your holiday season is merry and bright!

Nuncrackers is presented by Dr. Roy Thompson, Comprehensive Family Dentistry.
