Fun, Family-friendly ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Opens December 3

Follow the wild holiday adventures of a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won't take no for an answer on their quest to find out why Santa missed their house last year. Central Washington University Central Theatre Ensemble’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas provides a charming night of holiday entertainment for children of all ages.

“Such a playful spirit romps through 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, you might think the show itself was a product of Santa’s workshop,” commented one critic.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas will be performed at 7:30 p.m., December 3, 4, and 5 at the Milo Smith Tower Theatre. There will be a matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on December 6. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for seniors and non-CWU students, and $8 for CWU students with ID. Advance ticket purchase recommended. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 509-963-1429. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Wildcat Shop Customer Service at the Student Union and Recreation Building.

Parking is free in all university lots after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends, except in residential housing lots and in specially designated spaces.
