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,” the show is filled with wacky Nunsense humor, popular carols, and a “Secret Santa” sequence, Reily said.
“Certain to tickle your funny bone and likely to tug at your heartstrings, ‘Nuncrackers’ is the perfect way to make your holiday season merry and bright,” Reily said. “We are thrilled to offer this show to the public this holiday season.”
