Published 6:00 am Wednesday, November 29, 2006

The Middleton School of Dance, under the direction of Ann Gaude, will present its first annual production of “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Natchez City Auditorium.

The community is invited to attend and “enjoy an evening of holiday magic as Santa, along with a cast of snowflakes, fairies, candy canes, peppermints, mechanical dolls and many other characters come to life in this Christmas ballet,” Gaude said. “There will be surprises and warm wishes for all.”

Tickets, $10 each for adults and $5 each for children, will be available at the door the night of the performance.
