Holiday hoopla

. November 26, 2013.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Washtenaw County people lined up in droves to see a newly minted play. OK, let’s hope the songs in One Sleepy Night, a new Christmas musical, will rhyme better than the last sentence. Composed by Don Hart and Jay Sappington, One Sleepy Night, an original production with a cast of over 30, demonstrates how one grandfather’s bedtime story reunites a family. Structured as a play within a play, the musical recedes from modernity to ancient times and then returns.

Premieres Thursday, December 5. 7pm. Runs through Saturday, December 7. Ann Street Music Room, 812 Ann St., Ypsilanti. Special Gala performance, with semiformal garb, featuring a special guest ap- pearance by Blitzen the reindeer on Saturday, December 14. 7pm. Michigan Theatre, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-973-6010. onesleepynight.com
