“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse…” Everyone knows this Christmas Holiday Classic by heart! But did you know the mouse’s name was Izzy, shut out of his snug home on Christmas Eve? Be part of Izzy’s great adventure to the North Pole where he meets Santa’s Elves, Rosie the Reindeer and comes face to face with the Abominable Snowman! Izzy and Rosie save the day, helping Santa and his Reindeer deliver the goodies just in time for Christmas morning! Packed with laughs and audience participation, this fun show ends with a lump in your throat and everyone reciting Clement Moore’s famous poem.
