THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Robert Alan Evans
Carol doesn’t feel very Christmassy. What’s all the fuss about? Trees, tinsel, baubles, pudding, presents…? What a lot of nonsense. Definitely not for her.
That is until the night before Christmas when Elf 30046, all stripey tights and pointy ears, falls down her chimney and they both tumble into a bigger adventure than they could ever have imagined. Will Elf ever do as he’s told? Will Carol learn to have fun? Will they ever spot the speeding sleigh and most importantly of all… can they find Father Christmas before it’s too late?
A beautiful, funny and delightful story of friendship and the true meaning of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas returns to Leeds Playhouse after a sell-out run in 2015.
All performances will be D/deaf friendly and feature creative use of sign language.
