Today’s Performance By Dufflebag Theatre: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (11: 30 am and 2 pm)

Everyone can’t wait for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve, even with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads! But somewhere along the line, the jolly old elf seems to have mislaid his sack of presents. What’s worse is that Old Man Winter is determined to stop him. Will Christmas have to be cancelled? Not if Mrs. Claus and the reindeer can help! DuffleBag expands the beloved Clement Clarke Moore poem in fun new directions just in time for the holidays!
