|'Twas the Night Before Christmas Puppet Show Performance Planned for Nov. 19 at Roeland Park Community Center|
Clement C. Moore's famous Christmas poem is the subject of a play which will be brought to life by Stone Lion’s intricate puppets during a Nov. 19 performance for children ages three to 12.
"'Twas the Night before Christmas" brings Santa's workshop to life with elf magic and trick marionettes, including a giant doll house. The audience will join Mrs. Claus as she cleans up the workshop after Santa leaves for the night and see a puppet re-enactment of the famous poem.
