Miracle on 34th Street is the story of what takes place in New York City following Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  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 they plot to ruin him.  A single mother and her daughter, a lawyer, and many others are left wondering whether or not a department store Santa just might be the real Mr. Claus.  A young girl’s belief in Santa and the magic of the holiday are at stake in a climactic courtroom decision. This hilarious, tender and charming show is a Christmas classic for the entire family.
