Review: The Night Before Christmas at Leeds Playhouse

The Night Before Christmas is beautifully engaging from beginning to end!

The show is performed by two amazing actors who transport you deep inside the storyline by constantly interacting with the audience. At some point they make you feel that the whole performance is made only for you. You can feel the eye contact. However, that intimate feel is, at times, broken by the joyful sound of kids having a proper loud laugh.

The play also surprises because the actors beautifully communicate by using hands sign language. That really made the whole thing even more special and unique.

I loved it, my partner loved and my toddler loved. A must-see play

The Night Before Christmas runs at Leeds Playhouse until Saturday 28 December 2019. Age guidance: 3-7 years. Tickets: £14-£18 from (0113) 213 7700 or

  1. I agree, we went to see it tonight too. I think perhaps I enjoyed it as much as the children, maybe more! 😀
