The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation.

The Spotlight Players present this spectacular show as part of the 2017/2018 Theatre for Young Audiences series. As part of the series, the show will be traveled to local elementary schools after performing at the Playhouse. Adults and children alike will enjoy this tale of friendship, love, and loss.

Twas the night before Christmas / Black and Blue Friday

Presented by The Spotlight Players.

“‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” But wait! A mouse is stirring – because Santa missed his house last year. Before you can say “Merry Christmas!”, we’re off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won’t take no for an answer. Don’t miss this joyful tribute to the holiday season!

“Such a playful spirit romps through ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, you might think the show itself was a product of Santa’s workshop.” – The Washington Post

Plus,

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and all Ellie and her new husband, Jackson, want is to celebrate their first holiday season at home together.  But their holiday peace and quiet quickly turns into holiday chaos when they are summoned to the security office at the local mall.  Seems Ellie’s backwoods relatives were planning to surprise her with a visit, but first stopped at the store to pick up some paper goods.  That’s when the trouble began.  What they thought was a big-box store turned out to be a shopping mall full of frenzied Black Friday shoppers, and, of course, the hillbilly family ended up causing all sorts of trouble.
