"'Twas the Night Before Christmas" Brings Holiday Cheer to MCCC's
Kelsey Theatre Dec. 11-13
N.J. - Jolly old St. Nick is getting ready to make his annual visit
to good girls and boys around the world. Join the Kelsey Players
for "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," based on
the classic poem by Clement Moore, at Mercer County Community College's
Kelsey Theatre. Joyful performances for the whole family will take
place Friday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 12 at 11 a.m., 2
p.m. and 4 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 13 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre
is located on the college's West
Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.
In the true spirit of giving, Kelsey Theatre is participating in
the Toys for Tots drive; unwrapped, new toys may be dropped off
in the theatre's lobby through Dec. 21. Theater-goers will also
enjoy caroling in the lobby prior to the show. Then Clement Moore
takes the stage as his beloved poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas,"
comes to life. Audience members will be encouraged to sing along
with more favorite carols as Santa arrives at the end of the show.
The cast includes: Ken Ambs of Newtown, PA, as Clement Moore; Diane
Wargo of Ewing as Eliza Moore; Madison Glassman of Burlington as
