The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati presents ‘The Day Before Christmas’

Day Before Christmas Jack-Frost-and-Santa Every year my family and I look forward to seeing The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati‘s newest holiday production.  From Rudolph and his fellow reindeer to dancing Santa and so much more, they never disappoint with their clever, colorful, and wonderfully musical productions!   This year’s offering, The Day Before Christmas, will surely delight your whole family as well.

Here’s a little about the show from The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati:

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 to 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!

“The Day Before Christmas,” The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, through December 14.  7:30 p.m. Friday December 6, 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday December 7 & 14, 2 p.m. Sunday December 8. Taft Theatre, 317 East 5thStreet in Downtown Cincinnati. Tickets $7-$25.  800-745-3000 or visit

Q102 and The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati are proud to collect items for St. Joseph Orphanage at all performances of “The Day Before Christmas.”  Children and adults are encouraged to bring any new or unwrapped item and we’ll collect them in the Taft Theatre lobby.  Visit for a list of holiday requests.

    I think it’s Cindy Lou-Hoo from the Grinch! Follow and subscribe– thanks for the info on the CraftMarket at Music Hall yesterday. It was awesome!

    My Favorite Christmas character has to be Frosty the Snowman. My 7 year old son says his is Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.

    My favorite character is probably Mrs. Claus! She never gets any credit for all the work she does behind-the-scenes!

    Favorite holiday character is Charlie Brown not really a Christmas character but still love watching a Charlie Brown Christmas!

    Definitely the Grinch! Actually, I love Boris Karloff (who voiced the Grinch in the animated version of the book), but I don’t think that counts…

    My favorite Christmas character is the little dog Max, from the Grinch, with the antlers tied to his head. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!
