Final Auditions Announced for “NUNCRACKERS”

, ,

It was brought to our attention that some confusion may have surrounded our early auditions for the winter show “Nuncrackers” and some clarification may be needed. We chose to hold auditions early due to the quick turn around between our fall and winter productions. To ensure there is no interference with our fall show “Dracula” we would like to get scripts and music  for Nuncrackers to the selected cast and allow them to familiarize themselves before rehearsals begin on October 29th. The winter show will also have a few nights off, due Halloween & Thanksgiving, causing a shorter number of rehearsal nights. Based on this clarification, we will hold another round of auditions on Sunday, October 7th from 4-6 pm to be inclusive of those who want to be involved.  If you would like more information please contact us at 719-384-8320.

The Picketwire Players are extremely excited to present “Nuncrackers: The Nunsense Christmas Musical as our final production in our 50th Anniversary Season, directed by Desiree Goheen.

“Nuncrackers” will hold the honor of being the 152nd stage production of the Picketwire Players.

Preceded by Nunsense, Nunsense the Second Coming, and Nunsense Jamboree, “Nuncrackers,” takes place in real time in the basement of Mount Saint Helen’s convent. The show is the annual Christmas program put on at Mount Saint Helen’s. It stars the nuns you love, plus Father Virgil, and four of Mount Saint Helen’s most talented students. Featuring all new songs, this show is filled with typical Nunsense humor. We’re certain this Christmas show will make you laugh and maybe tug at your heartstrings. It’s the perfect way to insure that your holiday season is merry and bright.

The cast is in need of all ages and genders. Title characters include: Sister Mary Regina, Sister Mary Hubert, Sister Robert Anne, Sister Mary Paul, Sister Mary Leo, Father Virgil Manly Trott, and the Mount Saint Helen students John, Louise, Billy, and Maria.

Assisting with the production is the stellar team of Tracey Salzbrenner, Cameron Salzbrenner, Scott Goheen, Zach Zamora, Barb Hjelmstad and Mary Belew.
