This Christmas, the 1947 magical Christmas film, directed and written by George Seaton will be adapted for the stage. With timeless festive songs and seasonal cheer, we’re made up that Miracle on 34th Street will cast its magical spell over Liverpool Playhouse this Christmas.

Adapted for the stage by Meredith Willson and directed by the Everyman & Playhouse artistic director Gemma Bodinetz, this new production of the classic tale promises to be an enchanting musical ‘gift-wrapped especially for Liverpool.’

Packed with festive spirit and seasonal songs like ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’

Imagine your perfect Christmas. Tinsel and sparkles; letters to Father Christmas and carrots left for Rudolph; those childhood whispers and wishes…then imagine an alternative, where Christmas is all common sense. No magic and no secrets.

Do you believe in magic?

That is Christmas for sensible and skeptical six-year-old Susan and her mother. As cash tills chime and shoppers embark on the frantic race from Thanksgiving to New Year, a kind bearded gentleman who goes by the name, Kris Kringle, turns their rational reasoning – and the whole of New York’s cut-throat commercial spirit – on its head.

Packed with festive spirit and seasonal songs like ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’, Miracle on 34th Street has all that you could ever want in a Christmas show.
