“MBS Productions’ A Bur-Less-Q Nutcracker transcends the conventional with gleeful delight and sends its audience out into the night with ho ho ho holiday hubba-hubba.”

“Nothing enlivens family holiday gatherings quite like a burlesque routine.”

Are you tired of the typical Holiday shows? Come check ours out! The women of the Beulaville Baptist Book Club are in dire straits financially, and as a last ditch attempt to save their book club they decide to do a fundraiser and hire the Beaumont Ballet to perform Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker”. Madge’s Piña Colada Casserole unfortunately sickens the entire cast with food poisoning and they are unable to perform. Luckily, there is another dance troop in town. It seems the Velvet Kittens Burlesque Dancers are stuck in Beulaville because their van broke down on their way to New Orleans. Madge has never heard of Burlesque, or as she pronounces it “Bur-less-Q”, and in an act of necessity hires the dance troupe to do “The Nutcracker”. The end result? The most original, unusual, and comical Nutcracker you have ever seen!

November 29 through December 22, 2007, Wednesday – Saturday, showtime 8pm.

The show will be presented at the Stone Cottage Theatre, 15650 Addison Road, Addison TX 75001, 214-477-4942.

The play is directed by Jared Culpepper, based on an concept by Jana Edele, and written by Mark-Brian Sonna. Choreography is by Jana Edele and Mark-Brian Sonna with sets and costumes by Alejandro de la Costa.
