A holiday classic from the writer of the musical theater classic The Music Man! Based on the movie of the same name, Miracle On 34th Street features a book and score by none other than Meredith Willson. Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn't want her six-year old daughter Susan's head filled with romantic notions. Their neighbor Fred Gailey tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed -but when it turns out Macy's Santa may in fact be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts.
Filled with humor, spectacle and such beloved songs as "Pinecones and Hollyberries," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "My State, My Kansas," this joyous musical is pure family entertainment, wholesome and heartwarming. Miracle On 34th Street The Musical is the holiday treat for any theatre goer and a perfect outing for the family.
