'Twas the Night Before Christmas
November 14 - December 20, 2020
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse! Kick off your family’s yuletide season with this comic take on the classic poem. When Santa’s Naughty or Nice list has gone missing, it’s up to a pair of dancing mice, a spunky girl, and an Elf-B-I agent to solve the mystery before Santa boards his sleigh. This production is a holiday gift for all ages!

A momentum and ebullience worthy of the Pixar era animate this world-premiere play, whose story line involves 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.”
-The Washington Post
“Such a playful spirit romps through “ ’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” you might think the show itself was a product of Santa’s workshop.”
-The Washington Post
“A grand Christmas adventure, filled with schemes, confrontations, mistaken identities, bravery, and all things naughty and nice! … this journey is an exciting one that I guarantee your children will love! Put some tickets in your kids’ Christmas stockings. It will make a great holiday gift.”
