Classic Christmas production ‘twas’ a delight

The recent presentation of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" by the Virginia Repertory Theatre may have been the Performing Arts and Lecture Series best play yet, according to those show saw it.

The Chesapeake Academy Performing Arts and Lecture Series recently hosted The Virginia Repertory Theatre production of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

This hilarious musical, which introduced Santa in a particularly beneficent light, was inspired by the timeless poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” and by the real life of its author, Clement Moore, reported head of school Deborah Cook.

This program, designed for ages 3 through grade four, was widely shared with area schools and child care programs, said Cook.

Nine Performing Arts and Lecture Series programs for the young of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula are made possible through the generosity of the Nettie Lokey Wiley Foundation, she said.

The next program will be Reptiles Alive! at 9:30 a.m. January 11 at Chesapeake Academy, 107 Steamboat Road, Irvington. Students will see live reptiles, including a snake, monitor lizard, tortoise, alligator and others.
