“Twas the Night Before Christmas”
The Ballet Conservatory of South Texas is performing “Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at the Alamo Heights High School Auditorium. We are excited to be collaborating with Elf Louise for this production. Tickets for admission will be a toy donation to Elf Louise so that no child in San Antonio will go without on Christmas morning. We will hold a complementary performance during the school day that the students at Howard, Cambridge, and Woodridge schools will be invited to attend, along with the public performance that evening. The ballet is based on the famous poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore. It will include dancing candy canes and gingerbread cookies, a mischievous elf, a boisterous Jack in the box, the beautiful Christmas Fairy, and of course an appearance by Santa Claus, Rudolph, and his reindeer!
