Carol doesn't feel very Christmassy. What's all the fuss about? Trees, tinsel, baubles, puddings, presents? What a lot of nonsense. Definitely not for her. That is until the night before Christmas when Elf 30046, all stripy tights and pointy ears, falls down her chimney and they both tumble into a bigger adventure than they could ever have imagined. Will Elf ever do as he's told? Will Carol learn to have fun? Will they ever spot the speeding sleigh and, most importantly of all, can they find Santa before it's too late? A beautiful, funny and delightful story of friendship and the true meaning of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas returns to the Playhouse after a sell-out run in 2015. It's the perfect present for little elves and a magical treat for the family this winter. All performances will be D/deaf friendly and feature creative use of sign language.Producer Leeds Playhouse. Author Robert Alan Evans. Director Amy Leach. Design Amelia Jane Hankin.
