Miracle on 34th Street at Tacoma Little Theatre

25 Nov

Tacoma Little Theatre is proud to continue its 94th season with Miracle on 34th Street from November 30 – December 23. Don’t miss this much-loved Christmas classic directed by Casi Wilkerson.

Based on the novel by Valentine Davies, Miracle on 34th Street tells an irresistable tale. Kris Kringle is the personification of good will and holiday spirit. As Macy’s holiday Santa, he enchants children and shoppers so completely that he is deemed dangerous by fellow employees who question his competency and plot to ruin him. A small girl’s belief in Santa and the magic of the holiday is at stake in a climactic courtroom decision.

Miracle on 34th Street Package
This year, Tacoma Little Theatre is offering a special Miracle on 34th Street Holiday Package that offers six admissions to any one performance of the show! After the performance, the cast will lead your group on a personal tour of the stage and set. Bring your camera, because Kris Kringle will be there, too! Each child in your group will receive a show poster signed by the entire cast.

Share the joy of the holidays and the magic of live theatre with friends, family, coworkers, and young ones for the price of $130. You’ll be supporting one of Tacoma’s proudest art organizations established in 1918!

Call the box office at 253.272.2281 or purchase tickets online. Miracle on 34th Street, Tacoma Little Theatre, 210 North I Street in Tacoma. Runs Friday, November 30 through Sunday, December 23, 2012. Performances Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2 pm.
