William Woods University's theater department is getting ready to present a holiday treat for the entire community.
According to a news release, the university's 2019-20 Mainstage Season Series will continue with "Twas The Night Before Christmas." Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday, as well as a 2 p.m. matinee Saturday, all in Dulany Auditorium.
The opening night production of the play tonight will be interpreted for the hearing-impaired members of the community. The play is open to audiences of all ages.
As the story famously begins: "Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." But wait — in this version of the classic tale, a mouse is stirring — because Santa missed his house last year, leading to a wild adventure with a mouse, an elf and a spunky little girl who just will not take no for an answer.
"Santa's elves are busy getting 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' ready for you," said Joe Potter, artistic director of the William Woods University Theatre Department. "It's a cute show wrapped up in a bow and suitable for the whole family. So be sure to join us."
