    MacDonald, a veteran of LALT, was last seen entertaining the Los Alamos community in the musical sensation, “Seussical.”
    Nick, played by Sequoyah Adams-Rice, is a precocious 12-year-old boy who raises the eyebrows of the Child Welfare Board when he writes an article on the benefits of unemployment insurance, threatening the fun-filled life that he and his Uncle Murray have created.
