The Night Before Christmas
Budding Theatre presents
The Night Before Christmas

13 Dec 2016 to 17 Dec 2016


Beth, Timothy, Charlie and Lucy are looking forward to their new iPads and video games for Christmas; they have no time for the traditional narrator and his boring old poem.

But this Christmas, magic will transport the children to other worlds; the worlds of Beatrix Potter, Hans Christian Anderson and Christmas folklore – all told with a modern twist.

Meet the mysterious Innocent; listen to the poor Little Match Girl; marvel at the Tailor of Gloucester, his sneaky cat Simkin and the Three Little Mice; and strut down the runway for the annual reindeer fashion show with Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen.

Written by the award-winning author of children’s comedy The Fairytale Channel and featuring some of Canberra’s most talented young performers, this is a Christmas family event not to be missed.

Please note: there are alternate casts performing each night. Check the cast list for each performance at
