The Trial Before Christmas is much more than the sum of its parts. It's a joyous, raucous and brilliant celebration of all things Christmas and all things Troy. It has the potential to be a holiday classic, every bit as much as A Christmas Carol or The Nutcracker Suite. Except it's uniquely ours, and that's what makes it so special.
