'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Students in Pre-Academy through Academy II present the timeless story of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas though this family-friendly production created by MBSA Director, Rolando Yanes.  After a fun evening out in the snow, Marie returns home to her toy nutcracker and while she ponders fond memories, a curious mouse causes all kinds of ruckus.  After the commotion settles, Marie falls asleep and dreams of Santa’s magical land full of dancing elves and toys before she wakes on Christmas day.
