A former winner of Goldstar National Nutcracker Award, A Bur-Less-Q Nutcracker is back at Addison’s Studio Theatre for its 13th smash year of holiday mayhem. The Beulaville Baptist Book Club is in dire straits financially, so the club decides to stage Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet as a fundraiser. But thanks to a disastrous piña-colada casserole at a pre-show party, the hired cast of ballet dancers falls ill, and the ladies are forced to re-cast the show with members of a stranded burlesque troupe that happens to be stuck in town. The ensuing performance by the Velvet Kittens might not feature any nudity, per se, but it does contain a festive string of sexual puns, adult language and bump-and-grind dance numbers.

They say all the world is a stage, but perhaps the drama behind-the-scenes is where the real story is at. Noises Off provides a sneak peek onstage and backstage of an amateur traveling theatre production from final rehearsals through opening night and the subsequent touring season. But can this troupe keep their offstage antics behind the curtain, or will the drama waiting in the wings find its way center stage?
