Ken Ludwig’s TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMASis a playful, spirited, Christmas comedy which follows the adventures of a spunky girl, a wacky mouse and an elf to solve a holiday mystery. Hijinx is an understatement – this journey is loaded with schemes, mistaken identities, duels, and a hip-hop number that will bring down the house. There may even be an appearance by Santa….
