'Tis the cast of CHRISTMAS: Emma Dancel as Emily (12/10 performance)

A festive holiday tale complete with song, dance, Santa, sword fights and more, HCT presents 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS in the Jeffers Theatre December 10th & 17th.

Honing her holiday bona fides in this return to the HCT stage is Emma Dancel as Emily (Green Cast).

Dancel, an all-A honor roll student at Jacobs Fork Middle School, enjoys drawing, playing instruments and martial arts training (she is an Advanced Green Belt in karate).

Dancel made her HCT debut in last season's JUNIE B. JONES IN JINGLE BELLS, BATMAN SMELLS holiday production, having so much fun that she was determined to audition for this season's show. Dancel is inspired by the spunky spirit of her character, and enjoys the community she has become a part of at HCT.

Performances of 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS are Saturdays, December 10th and 17th at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for youth and students. Tickets are available online at, or by phone at 828-328-2283. The theatre box office is open from 12-5 PM Wednesday through Friday, or one half-hour before a performance.

Please note that this event is an additional presentation and not part of the 74th Season. Season passes are not eligible for use for this event.

'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is rated G. It is produced in association with Corning Optical Communications. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
