2019-2020 School Time Theatre Season

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
School Time Audience:  K-5
Monday, Dec. 2, 2019—10:00 a.m. & 12:00 p.m. (Noon)

This heartwarming, hilarious, and charming Christmas musical is complete with a jolly Santa, reindeer on the roof, moonlight on the snow, Ma and Pa in their caps, and sugarplums dancing in the dreams of hopeful children. Our careworn poet, Clement Moore is struggling to write a Christmas poem. Clement, uninspired until his eyes and heart are opened with the help of his Dutch gardener, Kris Kringle, a couple of dancing mice, and by the loving, joyous images all about him in his own home and family, begins writing his immortal poem with these words, “’Twas the night before Christmas.” His poem is a delight to his family and to many generations of families who can’t imagine Christmas without “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”

Curriculum Connections:  Family Ties, Folk Tales, Language Arts, Literary Classic, Biography, Music, Reading, History, Character Development
