‘Twas the Night Before, the acclaimed holiday musical by Cirque du Soleil, makes its Dallas debut at the Texas C. U. Theater in Grand Prairie. The show opens Nov. 25 and runs through Dec. 11 for 25 performances.

“We are excited to be back in Texas, with this energetic show! ‘Twas the Night Before is a colorful spin on the beloved Christmas tale, with incredible acrobatic feats, lovable and fun characters that will wow children and their families” said Marie-Josée Adam, Vice-President and General Manager, Events & Experiences Division.

The critically acclaimed production is Cirque du Soleil’s first Christmas show, based on the classic poem “A Visit from St Nicholas” by Clement Clarke Moore. Memorable lines from this cherished classic inspired Cirque du Soleil’s story about a jaded young girl who rediscovers the magic of Christmas. A festive flurry of love and cheer created especially for families, ‘Twas the Night Before features thrilling acrobatics performed by a cast of 26 artists from all over the world. Lovable characters and a soundtrack including Christmas favorites are-invented by Cirque du Soleil.
