The Palmdale Junior Ballet and Theater Dance will present two performances of  “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and  Dance into Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2 and 7 pm at the Palmdale Playhouse, 38334 10th St. East.

Based on the timeless American poem by Clement Clarke Moore, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” brings to life the much-loved story of Santa Claus visiting an unsuspecting father. Set in the 1940s, the ballet follows a typical American family as they trim the tree, hang up stockings, leave cookies for Santa, and one man’s journey through a memorable night. Palmdale Theatre Dance will Dance Into Christmas with “Up On The Housetop,” “Jingle Bell Swing” and “Happy Santa Dance.”

Tickets are $12 for adults, and $10 for students, seniors, military and children 12 years and under. Tickets for all Palmdale Playhouse events may be purchased online at www.PalmdalePlayhouse.com, or at the box office beginning two hours before each show.
