'Twas the Night Before Christmas



Thursday, December 4, 2014
Florida Theatre, 10:00 & 12:00

$8.00 per person admission

(Grades K-5) Curriculum Connection: Literature Based - Communication & Language Arts - Theatre Arts - Music-Relationships & Family.

At times heart warming and hilarious, this charming Christmas musical is complete with a jolly Santa, reindeer on the roof, moonlight on the snow, Ma and Pa in their caps, and sugarplums dancing in the dreams of hopeful children. Our careworn poet, Clement Moore is struggling to write a Christmas poem. Clement, uninspired until his eyes and heart are opened by the loving, joyous images all about him in his own home and family, begins writing his immortal poem with these words, “’Twas the night before Christmas.” His poem is a delight to his family and to many generations of families who can’t imagine Christmas without “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”

The Florida Theatre is located at 128 East Forsyth St
Jacksonville, Fl 32202
