In the production, the Reverend Mother has built a Public-access television studio in the basement of the convent in order to film a holiday television special. The audience gets a behind-the-scenes look as everyone’s favorite nuns, Father Virgil, and four of Mount Saint Helen’s most talented students as they prepare for the show. The show features all new songs including Twelve Days Prior to Christmas, Santa Ain’t Comin’ to Our House, and We Three Kings of Orient Are Us. The show culminates in a wild spoof of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet.
