Salt Lake Ballet Theater presents

The Night Before Christmas

Jeanné Wagner Theatre
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Salt Lake City, Utah

On sale: TBA


On Christmas Eve a young girl named Alexandria is given a wonderful Christmas Party by her parents. The party is complete with entertainment and gifts for all the children.

After the party Alexandria falls asleep and finds herself immersed in a splendid dream. Her dream begins with a visit from the beautiful Christmas Fairy who takes her to Santa’s workshop where she sees all the splendid toys and candies that are being prepared for Christmas day. Santa sends her to visit the lovely Snow Queen and her icicle maidens. She then visits the Kingdom of the Sweets where she visits Clara and her Nutcracker Prince.

Alexandria then visits the Palace of the Christmas Fairy, and is most surprised when her journey takes her to visit Mother Goose in Storybook Land. She is delighted by her favorite Storybook characters and hopes her dream will never end. As she begins to awaken she hears a stirring in the Parlor. Santa and his elves have arrived but so has the Horrible Hateful Harry and his Grinches. They attempt to kidnap Santa. See what happens… Can the children save Santa?

Run time: 2 hours including 15 minute intermission.
