An ACT Original Adaptation
Oct 21-Nov 6:      The Nightmare Before Christmas

Halloween just isn't the same anymore, and Jack is thoroughly bored. Why can't he be the one to spread the joy of Christmas instead? Surely Santa needs a break from the "same-old, same-old," just like Jack himself! Despite the best of intentions, his plans end up putting Santa in jeopardy, and good little boys and girls find themselves in something of a ... nightmare! Youth and adult casts.
