Archive: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

November 29 – December 29, 2013

The Children's Theatre at Willow Lawn

Book, music and lyrics by Bruce Craig Miller

"’Twas the Night Before Christmas will bring delight and smiles to those 4 and up, and the modern references and positive message of joy, love and family values will make their parents and caregivers feel good about bringing them."

Richmond Times-Dispatch

At turns heart warming and hilarious, this 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 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.”

Length: 55 minutes
Suggested for ages 4 and up.
