Holiday Gala at the Movies

’Twas the Night Before Christmas

The Holiday Gala is a campus-wide collaboration with various departments, including faculty and student-led performances. Theatre professors Caroline and Tim Good performed a hilarious version of  “’Twas the Night before Christmas” as part of last year’s gala!
