DLT to perform ‘Nuncrackers’
By Derrick Miller
 It’s Christmastime, at least for
Duncan Little Theatre, as the or-
ganization prepares for its produc-
tion of “Nuncrackers.”
 The musical comedy will be
performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and
Saturday, and Nov. 16 and 17 at the
Simmons Center.
 Michael Harris is the director for
the show. Harris has directed previ-
ous DLT Christmas shows, includ-
ing “Dashing Through the Snow.”
 “This is one of the funniest
shows I have ever been involved in,” Harris said. “If you don’t laugh at this show,
your name must be Ebenezer Scrooge.”
 In “Nuncrackers,” a group of nuns work to put together their first Christmas
special in the basement of their convent. But things don’t go according to plan,
resulting in humorous moments and situations.
 Auditions for the show took place in September, and the cast and crew have
spent the last two months getting the show ready, while singing Christmas songs
during the Halloween season.  
 The nuns made a visit last week to Distinctive Décor and the Duncan Chamber
of Commerce monthly breakfast to promote the show.
 Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students, military and seniors. Tickets
can be purchased online or at the door.
2018 Veteran’s Day Parade
by Wayne Watts
 Cold temperatures
and gusty winds
dampened the turnout
for the annual Vet-
eran’s Day Parade in
Downtown Duncan
sponsored by the lo-
cal VFW Chapter and
American Legion on
Saturday. However,
those brave enough
to face the elements
were treated to a
nice but brief parade
honoring America’s
heros.
 Duncan police and firefighters led the parade with sirens and horns
blowing followed by a four man color guard. Next followed several floats
with kids tossing candy to the bystanders and numerous classic cars, trac-
tors and the Patriot Guard with their motorcycles.
 Honoring American Veteran’s on November 11th came about with the
ending of World War 1 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month
of 1918. World War 1 was the “War to End All Wars”.
 Originally, Veteran’s Day was called Armistice Day, but was changed by
congress and renamed in 1954.
 The difference in Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day is that Veteran’s Day
honors all Veterans and Memorial Day honors those who died in the ser-
vice to the country.
