Don't miss this joyful tribute to the holiday season!

“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!
