Director's Take: Twas the Night Before Christmas - Opening Dec. 1

"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." But wait! A mouse is stirring, because Santa missed his house last year. Before you can say "Merry Christmas!” we're off on a wild adventure involving a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won't take no for an answer.

"'Twas the Night Before Christmas is a classic poem we all have read growing up, but the play is a bit more exciting with an adventure to get us into the spirit of the season," says Director Hannah Weinberg. "Ken Ludwig is one of my favorite playwrights because he creates fun characters in fun situations, and isn't afraid to pull out all the stops."

Join us for this tribute to the Christmas season by Tony© award-winner Ken Ludwig. It’s a grand adventure involving a heist, a duel with rapiers, some hip-hop, a squirt gun, a perilous airplane flight, and an elf’s stint as a secret agent. It’s a journey we’re sure the whole family will enjoy—a fun-filled, joyous way to celebrate the holidays together.
