December 12, 2011 · Updated 3:54 PM
It’s poetry, sheer poetry! More specifically it’s a hilarious spin on this country’s most famous holiday poem, "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
In Studio East’s beloved ‘Twas the Night all the rules are broken as reindeer dress like chorus girls, cats and mice share the same stage in harmony, and time knows no bounds when the swingin’ 60s collide with prim and proper Victorian carolers.
Now in its 11th year, this Studio East tradition appeals to all ages. Casts and audiences alike look forward to songs like Adventure, Isn’t that Just like a Man?, The Cat’s Meow, and Buck without a Doe.
But there’s always a new scene or song to keep people on their toes. ‘Twas the Night involves a rotating cast of 46 talented young performers and adults. The running time is 1 hour and 40 minutes with one intermission.
All tickets are $14. All performances are at the Studio East Mainstage Theater, located at 11730 118th Ave. N.E. in Kirkland through Dec. 18. Performances begin at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. There will also be a final evening performances at 7 p.m. Dec 16.
