'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...


"A fine piece of theatre" The Stage

"Christmas, just as it should be..." BrightonArgus

On the night before Christmas Emily stares out of the window, hugs her teddy and waits excitedly for the morning, while in the corner a little mouse called Eddie can’t understand why only humans are allowed to celebrate and get presents. So he sets off in search of Father Christmas to find out for himself. Along the way he dodges the family cat, gets directions from a cowardly toy soldier and is given some unexpected advice from the magical fairy on top of the tree. Will Eddie get an answer? Will Emily get her wish? And what is that funny-shaped present sitting under the tree?


The Night Before Christmas is a co-production with Brighton Dome. It is suitable for families and children aged 3-7 and perfect for schools groups as a Christmas treat.
