Getting Back On-track
In March, TCT’s 51st Season came to an abrupt halt when we hit the brakes on our big musical “Nunsense” which was getting set to open. And plans for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” were derailed, too.
We’re idling – waiting for the green light to proceed with our next season and planning the 2020/21 season on a TBA basis. When we get rolling, the new season will start with “Nunsense” and include fun shows like “A Double-Wide Christmas,” “Deathtrap,” “Moon Over Buffalo” and our ever-popular Playwrights’ Festival.
We hope this derailment is cleared soon! To ease the pain, TCT will automatically extend all active members for one year without payment - and any new (or rejoining) member who enrolls before June 1, 2020 will get a “free” year, too.
While TCT is sidetracked, no member will be dropped for not renewing this year. We trust that those who can, will help us “keep the Marquee lit” with donations to meet our continuing expenses: maintenance of the BeeKay, rent, utilities, insurance, etc.
To make a donation during this time to help with the cost we still need to cover, please visit our Getting Back on Track fundraiser.
Or to join as a new/returning member, please visit our Membership page or mail to Tehachapi Community Theatre 431 West J Street, Tehachapi, CA 93561
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.
