TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a magical, musical adaptation of the well-known nineteenth century rhyme of the same name. This heart-warming tale brings the magic of Christmas to life in a fantastically festive setting. Intended for children in Key Stage 1 and early Key Stage 2 (6-9 year olds). There are parts for mice, children, toys, Father Christmas, reindeer and many, many more, all with amazing costumes. The songs are incredibly Christmasy and the CD includes backing tracks and performance tracks as well as incidental music providing opportunities for adding dance and mime to the production.
