A “mini magical experience”: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

People living within 10 kilometres of Derby Theatre can book a “unique” theatrical experience: a 15-minute performance of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas which families can experience from their own doorstep.

Front Door Theatre and Derby Theatre have got together on the show which is a “mini magical experience” for children aged from four to nine and their grown-ups.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas will be directed by Daniel Ellis and designed by John Barber, with music by Ivan Stott and costume by Mica Loveridge.

There will be a “magical” score with classic Christmas tunes to bring to life Clement Clarke Moore’s traditional poem. Families can book the show between Saturday 12 and Wednesday 23 December.
