The Day Before Christmas
The Children’s Theatre Of Cincinnati
Our family enjoys The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. We try to go a few times a year, but we always go to the Christmas play. It’s become and annual tradition. Over the years, I have been nothing but impressed with the actors and actresses in every performance I’ve seen. I’m positive that I enjoy the shows as much, if not more, than my kids! The shows are perfect for children. The stories appeal to them and the shows are typically only 45-55 minutes long. My son was 3 at his first performance (Rudolph, I think) and sat through the whole thing. He is now 8 and asked me just yesterday if we were going again this year.
“The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is one of the oldest children’s theatres in the country! Today, the Children’s Theatre brings art to life for children and the young at heart through three key programs: MainStage at the Taft, ArtReach (including WorkShops), and Learning the Craft.
The MainStage at the Taft series performed in downtown Cincinnati includes daytime performances for school audiences and weekend performances for the public. Geared toward children ages 4-14, these family-friendly one-hour professional productions feature music, drama, visual arts, and dance as a means of introducing children to the magic of the performing arts.”
The Children’s Theatre also offers study guides for their productions. Although the study guides are meant for teachers and schools to use as a tool to incorporate the productions into their curriculum, we use them at home. The study guides are great for getting my kids excited about the show, reflecting on it after and providing additional dimensions to an already super fun, yet educational experience.
The Day Before Christmas Study Guide
The Children’s Theatre Of Cincinnati is getting ready to start performances to their holiday show, The Day Before Christmas: There is a flurry of activity at the North Pole. Santa and Mrs. Claus, the elves, the reindeer, the forest animals and even the toys themselves prepare for the biggest night of the year! It takes a lot of planning and hard work to get a sleigh off the ground and deliver toys to children around the world, but Santa’s team is ready and willing. Or at least they think they are before a tricky Jack Frost decides to try to stop the Christmas Festivities with a little comical chaos and calamity. Jack Frost is played by Jake Kolesar and Leo J. Northart III will again play the part of Santa. I can’t imagine anyone else ever playing that role as he plays it perfectly! This is the perfect family show geared to ages pre-K through adults.
Runtime: 55 minutes | Ages: 4+ | Musical Theater
