For the past few years, Snow College has been doing productions of A Christmas Carol, but the theatre program decided to do something different this Christmas season. The Miracle on 34th Street is a musical version of the 1947 Radio Broadcast under the same title.
The musical is taking place on December 4 through the 7 at the Eccles Building in the Kim Christison Theater. It costs $10 for adults, $9 for youth and seniors, and $2 for students with a student ID.
The story of The Miracle on 34th Street is about a mall Santa who claims to be the real Santa Claus. His story is taken to the Supreme Court, that changes the story. The musical includes classic Christmas carols, such as “Joy to the World”, “Jingle Bells”, and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”.
According to Boston Smith, one of the actors, it’s been a fun experience for the cast to put on this production. He claims, “It’s a collective show that we’re discovering as we go and I look forward to continuing that exploration even through the shows.”
This crew plan to bring the Christmas Spirit onto campus before finals, ushering in the season with a classic tale and sending students off on their break.
