Magical "Miracle" Comes to MCCC's
Kelsey Theatre Nov. 30-Dec. 9

10/31/07


Do you believe? When the Macy's Department Store Santa claims to be the real Kris Kringle, adults and children alike are forced to re-examine their beliefs. Join The Pennington Players for the magical holiday classic, "Miracle on 34th Street," coming to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Fridays, Nov. 30 and Dec. 7 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Dec. 1 and 8 at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Sundays, Dec. 2 and 9 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. In celebration of the season, Kelsey Theatre is hosting a toy collection for charity in the lobby through Dec. 21.

Meet department store executive Doris Walker, who has a no-nonsense attitude about most things, Santa Claus included! But when the original Santa proves too unreliable to perform his duties at the store, an old man is quickly recruited who severely tests her attitudes, along with those of her skeptical daughter Susan, the store's incompetent psychologist, and a host of others. This delightful production captures the true wonder of the holidays - right down to a condensed version of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on the Kelsey stage. Children are also welcome to bring their letters for Santa, which will be collected and presented to the big man himself.
