"On behalf of the Board of Tehachapi Community Theatre, I would like to express how deeply we value our members, volunteers and each and every one of our patrons. That includes a concern for their health and safety. During this time of health crisis in America we are following the recommendations of CDC and will postpone all mass gatherings as of today until further notice. Although we currently have nothing in performance, we have been planning a mid April opening for our next production of "Nunsense" as well a June opening for " One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." Both are being postponed until further notice. We hope to end our hiatus two months from now at the earliest in order to return to what we do best, which is bringing our community of patrons together with the common love of live theatre.
As we say in the theatre, "The show must go on," and it will. Just a little bit later. We will of course continue to monitor the guidance of CDC and adapt accordingly.
Thank you and stay safe and healthy out there.
Gary Mazzola, TCT President, on behalf of the Board. "
NUNSENSE by Dan Goggin
Directed by Doug Jockinsen, Musical Director Guy Martin
Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France, discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls.
Upon discovering the disaster, Mother Superior had a vision in which she was told to start a greeting card company to raise funds for the burials. The greeting cards were an enormous success and, thinking there was plenty of money, the Reverend Mother bought a VCR and camcorder for the convent, leaving her with no money in the kitty to pay for the last four burials.
With the deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen's High School auditorium to raise the necessary amount. Participating in the project are Mother Superior Mary Regina, a former circus performer who can not resist the spotlight; her competitive but dignified rival, second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert; Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is determined to be the world's first ballerina nun; and wacky, childlike Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
Because they have to use the High School auditorium, they are forced to do their variety show in front of the set of “Grease”, which the High School is currently rehearsing for. The entertainment that they present includes solo star turns, madcap dance routines, and an audience quiz.
