"NUNCRACKERS, The Nunsense Christmas Musical" at Hayswood Theatre

Buy your tickets now for NUNCRACKERS, The Nunsense Christmas Musical at Hayswood Theatre.

The Little Sisters of Hoboken are back in Hayswood Community Theatre's good-hearted and hilarious Christmas musical comedy, “Nuncrackers.” This time the good nuns have gone high-tech, televising their annual Christmas concert from their new cable access studio built in the convent basement. Reverend Mother Mary Regina has her hands full trying to maintain the proper convent decorum while marshalling her disparate crew to put on an entertaining show. Streetwise Sister Mary Robert Anne is a perennial show biz wannabe, yearning for the bright lights of Carnegie Hall. Spaced-out Sister Mary Paul is a former country music singer, and Sister Mary Hubert aspires to be a gospel singer. It doesn't help that Revered Mother herself grew up in a circus family and can't resist a turn in the spotlight. The audience has assembled and the show must go on, but everything that can go wrong does. Father Virgil tries to do a cooking segment but drinks too much of the recipe's rum. Sister Mary Leo, whose desire is to be the first nun ballerina, gets injured just before her big dancing scene in “The Nutcracker.” Sister Mary Paul, also called Sister Amnesia, keeps teaching the children the wrong lyrics for songs such as “Here We Come-a-Waffle-ing.” Even the convent's Christmas presents go missing. Necessity is the mother of invention, and the Little Sisters of Hoboken rise to the occasion with escalating mirth and mayhem.

This Christmas musical comedy will take place at Hayswood Theatre November 27 through December 13. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets can be purchased at the Blaine H. Wiseman Visitor Center or by calling 888-738-2137. For more information and ticket prices, visit
