About The Performance
Twas The Night Before Christmas is a mini magical theatre experience, on your very own doorstep. Put on your cosy slippers, wrap up in your cuddliest blanket and settle down for a festive treat, without having to leave your home!
It’s Christmas Eve, Mother and Father have just fallen asleep when…BOOM, a very loud clatter from the garden wakes them up. Father springs from the bed, jumps to the window and spots a friendly looking chap in the distance. A large round belly and beard white as snow, can only mean one thing…it is Father Christmas.
Combined with a magical score and flavoured with some classic Christmas tunes, we bring Clement Clarke Moore’s traditional poem to life, all from the comfort of your own home.
Twas The Night Before Christmas is a Front Door Theatre Production, in association with Derby Theatre.
Supported by Arts Council England.
