THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS to Bring Magic to The Arches, Dec 4-Jan 5
'Twas the night before Christmas, When all by herself, One lonely girl finds a lost little elf... The show will run Wednesday 4 Dec 2013 - Sunday 5 Jan 2014 at The Arches. An elf's magical Christmas tale for ages 3-7 yrs (but all welcome!) Written + directed by Robert Alan Evans, starring Laurie Brown (The Ugly Duckling) and Ronnie Leer.
It's Christmas Eve and everyone's excited - wrapping presents, going to parties, singing songs - everyone, that is, except Carol. She simply hatesChristmas and wishes everyone would stop going on about it. But that night, as she settles down to sleep, she hears some crying and finds an elf under her bed! Lost and lonely, the elf just wants to find Santa again, and he needs Carol's help. And so begins the adventure of a lifetime, one which Carol will never forget; a search for the true magic of Christmas!
A spell-binding show from Director Robert Alan Evans (Rudolph, Mr Snow), The Night Before Christmas promises to take audiences on a magical journey that will delight children and adults alike. After wowing audiences at Stirling's Macrobert theatre in 2009, the show returns to the stage this year at The Arches. Offering an enthralling tale, delightful music, and laughs aplenty, The Night Before Christmasis an ideal Christmas treat.
