With an elaborate story book set, a wall of Christmas presents, and a heartfelt story of family, Miracle on 34th Street The Musical is sure to dazzle anyone. Relatable for all ages, this musical  tells the story of Doris Walker, a divorcee and driven career woman who works at Macy’s in New York City during its heyday right after WWII, and her little daughter, Susan. Neither of them believe in Santa or the magic of Christmas, but Fred Gaily, the Marine next door, is determined to change their lives if he can only soften Doris’s heart. At the same time, even though the crowds are more worried about where to find the cheapest Christmas present and have lost the joy of what the season is all about, Kris Kringle is determined to help everyone in New York find the true meaning of Christmas.  Filled with humor, spectacle and such beloved songs as "Pinecones and Hollyberries," "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" and "Here’s Love," this joyous, heartwarming musical is pure family entertainment, wholesome without being cloying. Since one of the themes of the show is the importance of family, for the first time, the Royal Theatre offers a cast of actors that includes 4 generations of the same family, a brother and sister duo with their grandfather, twins, and a father and daughter pair all on stage together in this classic Christmas musical.
