Community Theatre brings holiday Miracle to stage


Canton Community Theatre proudly presents its production of the holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street.

This timeless classic chronicles the story of an old man going by the name of Kris Kringle, who fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.

As Kringle is absolutely clear in his head that he is the real Santa Claus, watch as he uses his gifts of optimism and belief to persuade his skeptics how the power of imagination and charity can overcome negativity and cynicism in the world today (or at least in New York City).

Under the direction of John Williams along with his daughter Jacqui, the 29-member cast features an abundance of veteran local talent as well budding performers — spanning across all ages, representing Canton as well as other nearby towns.
