“Miracle on 34th Street, the Play,” is a classic holiday story that is fun for all ages. This comedy-drama tells the tale of a man living in a retirement home who gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s Department Store. Named “Kris Kringle,” the man changes the spirit of the holiday season for the better by challenging the blatant commercialism that surrounds us. The show is the first annual holiday community production planned for the new stage, presented through a joint partnership between Tahoma Drama Club and the Tahoma Performing Arts Boosters, and directed by Melissa Bean.

“This has been a wonderful way to celebrate our first year in our new performing arts center — by having the community members who helped make this new building possible be a part of one our first theatrical productions. This has truly been a Maple Valley community endeavor, and it has been amazing to see so many wanting to be involved,” Bean said.

“Miracle” stars Tahoma staff members in several roles: THS teacher Jeff Heil as Fred and Glacier Park teacher Debbie Arnold as Doris. Tahoma High teacher Martina Morgan plays Ms. Bloomingdale and Tahoma bus driver Ken Kinnear plays Judge Harper. A number of Tahoma students also fill cast roles.

“Miracle on 34th Street, the play,” is presented through special arrangement with and authorized performance materials supplied by Dramatic Publishing, New York, NY. The play was adapted by Mountain Community Theatre from the novel written by Valentine Davies based on the Twentieth Century Fox motion picture “Miracle on 34th Street.”

Tickets are available now for purchase online with reserved seating, and will also be available at the door beginning one hour before each showtime. Performances are at the Tahoma Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. on December 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9th; and matinees are at 2 p.m. on December 2 and 9. Tickets are $10 for general seating, $8 for senior citizens, $5 for children younger than 10. Buy tickets online at https://tahomadrama1.brownpapertickets.com/ or at the door.
