‘Tis (Almost) The Night Before Christmas

xmas posterWant to get into the spirit of the season? It’s easy to do at the Harwich Junior Theater, where, starting December 5th, you can see a wonderful dramatic version of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, playing through January 6th.

It’s four days before Christmas, and the New York Evening Post needs a holiday feature story—but writer Clement Moore has writer’s block. Besides that, he must work at home amongst his five children who are, needless to say, very anxious for St. Nicholas to arrive.

Moore FamilyClement’s frustration mounts—but then, unexpectedly, the magic begins. The sounds of bells, moving toys, and visions of Sugar Plum Fairies all conspire to help Clement as the events from the classic poem come to life.

All this is interwoven with carolers, a song to St. Nicholas, dancing fairies and much more, including, of course, a visit from the old elf himself. The musical concludes with the complete original poem set to exquisite music. This fresh telling of the most popular Christmas poem ever told will delight audiences of all ages.
