"Miracle On 34th Street"
At Stoneham Theatre

Stoneham Theatre is bringing the classic holiday story, "Miracle on 34th Street," to its stage through December 23.

Based on the novel by Valentine Davies and adapted by Patricia Di Banedetto Snyder, Will Severin and John Vreeke, this family favorite puts the spirit of Christmas on trial. When the real Kris Kringle gets a job playing Santa at Macy’s department store, he sets out to teach one little girl that yes, there really is a Santa Claus. In the process, he ends up restoring a whole city’s belief in the magic of the Christmas Season.

Director Weylin Symes commented, “The story embodies what is great about the holiday season and is a perfect family show for our audiences. As the play’s character Fred Gailey so succinctly states, ‘Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don't you see? It's not just Kris (Kringle) that's on trial; it's everything he stands for.’ “

With Bill Gardiner as Kris Kringle and Rebecca Lerman as Susan Walker, the company includes Christine Hamel, Rebecca Lerman, Timothy Fannon, Robert Saoud, Harold Withee, Harvey Greenberg, Irene Daly, Allan Mayo, Anthony Cascio, Kiera McNelis, Brian Quint, Alycia Sacco, Gerald Slattery, Matt Spano and local kids Alexandra Flammia, Emily Pinto, Michael Sticca and Maria Tramontozzi.

The theater is located at 395 Main Street in Stoneham. For tickets and information, stop by the box office, call 781-279-2200 or visit www.stonehamtheatre.org.
