Glenview ballet short, sweetmore...

Families seeking a special holiday experience should check out the Glenview Performing Arts Center's production of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," which opens tonight.
Enchanting special effects -- including a magical growing Christmas tree with over 10,000 lights and an indoor snowfall -- stunning costumes, lovely choreography and a lush musical score make "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" a special ballet, according to artistic director Theodore Dawson.
