Inspired by Clement Clarke Moore's much-loved poem, we bring Christmas Eve to life in a new production featuring original music, skilful puppetry and a generous sprinkling of festive magic.
Amber is six and loves reindeers! It's Christmas Eve but Grandad is being extremely grumpy, and Amber's favourite snow-globe gets broken. Then her world is turned topsy turvy by a surprise visitor and Amber begins an adventure she will never forget.
Join Amber on a festive journey like no other - after all, on the night before Christmas, surprises can happen.

Polka Theatre creates a range of productions to be enjoyed by children from 0-12 years. Whilst all children may attend our production of The Night before Christmas, we feel that this story is best suited to an audience aged 3 to 7. This may be due to the themes or presentation style. We encourage you to consider this when booking tickets.
