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.
