Rehearsals are already under way for the Meridian Little Theatre's second production of the season, "Nuncrackers."
The show will run Dec. 6-12. It features traditional carols, plus some Christmas Carol spoofs, including: "Here We Come A-Waffel-ing," and "The Holly and Ivory."
The scene is set for a Christmas concert as everybody's favorite nuns warm up for their first television special. The program, which the audience will witness, is done with lots of love, reverence and good Christmas spirit.
The role of Father Virgil will be played by Zena Limberick, who has performed in MLT's "Forever Plaid," "Grease," "My Fair Lady" and "Crazy for You."
