Elora Community Theatre prepares to save Santa

Performs Miracle on 34th Street in December

FERGUS – Do you believe in Santa? Elora Community Theatre sure does and is showing its Christmas spirit by bringing none other than Kris Kringle to the stage with its presentation of Miracle on 34th Street, The Play. 

Adapted from the novel by Valentine Davies, as well as the 1947 Twentieth Century Fox motion picture, by the Mountain Community Theatre, Miracle on 34th Street, The Play is a heartwarming seasonal classic that is sure to bring out the jolly in theatre lovers! 

It tells the story of Kris Kringle as he gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. 

Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City. However, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. 

At stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa and the possibilities of imagination.

“The children in this show are just remarkable and so the audience will definitely be smiling throughout most of this play; there are some serious moments certainly but, it’s a lot of fun,” directors Deb Stanson and David Tanner agree. 

“There’s going to be some music, of course. What would a Christmas play be without some Christmas carols? So, the audience may end up singing along, you never know.” 

It is a heartwarming holiday story that we all want to believe in, where love and generosity of spirit are their own rewards, said Stanson. 

Miracle on 34th Street, The Play will be presented Fridays through Sundays from Dec. 8 to 17.

Show times Friday and Saturdays are at 8pm with 2pm matinee Saturdays and Sundays at the Fergus Grand Theatre.
