Join Moonlight Dinner-Theatre in October for a delightfully zany production of "Nunsense"!

A special show & dessert-only event will take place October 16, at 7:30 PM.

Dinner-and-a-show performances will be October 17-18 and 24-25. The meal begins at 6:30 PM, and the show starts at 7:30 PM. Show-only tickets available.

A matinee show-only performance will be held at 2 PM, October 26.

All performances will take place in LHUCA's Christine DeVitt Icehouse Theatre at 511 Avenue J, Lubbock.

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of "Grease." Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.

CATS November 20 - 23

In November 2014, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals will once again bring professional theatre with a local flavor to Lubbock audiences with a new production of the musical CATS by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. The musical will be presented in its original form—completely staged and costumed—continuing a new era of cooperation and collaboration among Lubbock arts groups and artists. The production will be directed and produced by Lubbock Moonlight Musicals' General Director, Gerald Dolter, and choreographed by Ballet Lubbock's own Yvonne Racz-Key. John Hollins of the Lubbock Chorale will lead the production musically and will conduct the professional orchestra in the pit.

Performances are set for November 20, 21, 22, and 23, 2014 in the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre beginning at 7:30 pm on Thursday – Saturday evenings, and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are currently available at all Select-a-Seat locations, by calling 806.770.2000, and online at Select-A-Seat

The production will once again be coordinated to coincide with the Junior League of Lubbock's annual Holiday Happening expo at the Civic Center, and one dollar of each ticket sold shall be donated to a local charity through the Junior League.

Somewhat typical of Lloyd Webber's musicals (i.e. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), the show is completely told through music with virtually no spoken dialogue between the numbers. Musical genres range from classical to pop, music hall, jazz, rock, and electro-acoustic music. Dance is also a key element in the musical. CATS is based upon T.S. Eliot's "Old Possom's Book of Practical Cats," and is currently the second longest-running show in Broadway history.

The cast of CATS will be headlined by Jeff M. Smith, a Lubbock Moonlight Musicals alumni and Texas Tech graduate, who will perform the leading role of Munkustrap. Smith recently completed a national tour of the musical West Wide Story in the leading role of Tony. Stunning mezzo-soprano, Ann Marie Nichols, has been engaged for the role of Grizabella, the cat who sings the beloved ballad Memories.

The plot centers around the Jellicle Ball, an annual event where the Jellicle Cats assemble to rejoice and choose which of the Jellicle Cats will journey to the Heaviside layer (heaven). This celebration is led by Old Deuteronomy, a wise, fatherly cat who acts as the patriarch and guardian of all Jellical Cats. After overcoming the imposition of having an audience for their ball, the cats are introduced by Munkustrap, a grey tabby cat who acts as narrator and aide to Old Deuteronomy. As the cats are individually introduced, they audition to be chosen as the cat who journeys to the Heaviside layer. First is Jennyanydots (leading a troop of tap dancers); then comes Rum Tum Tugger, an extremely attractive prankster who enjoys being the center of attention (think Elvis); next is Grizabella, an older cat who once was glamorous and now has only "Memories"; and so the introductions continue…. After a skit where the cats dress up as feuding dogs; a bit of trouble with the villainous Macavity, which leads to a massive cat fight; magic by Mr. Mistoffelees; and many stunning dance sequences; the Jellical Ball is concluded with a final ballad by Old Deuteronomy as he announces the Jellical Choice.
