Description:
A holiday classic, “Miracle on 34th Street The Musical” is sure to fill you with happiness and cheer for the holiday season. Based on the classic 1947 film, and written by Meredith Willson, creator of “The Music Man,” it tells the tale of a skeptical little girl who doubts the existence of Santa Claus. When the real Kris Kringle is hired inadvertently to represent jolly St. Nick in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, he must convince the child and her cynical mother that he is the real thing. Filled with humor, spectacle, and beloved songs such as “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas,” this joyous, heartwarming musical is pure family entertainment. Presented at the Merryman Performing Arts Center in Kearney, this is a tale that we want to believe in, that creates a world we seem to desperately desire, where love and generosity of spirit are their own rewards.
