Get tickets today to see this musical of a Christmas fantasy where Santa Claus is no myth; come see for yourself with the Miracle on 34th Street musical that brings its magic to Dubai.
The production tells the powerful story of Kris Kringle, a white-bearded old gent who is the living image of Santa Claus and claims to be the real thing, “the Father of Christmas,” and his interactions with a girl named Susan Walker. The young girl notices there is something special about Kris and his determination to advance the true spirit of Christmas. Her mother, Doris, works for Macy’s and hires the kindly Kris as the store’s toy-department Santa, as replacement to a drunken old man that was going to play that part on a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Taking his place, Kris was going to play that role as Santa at the New York City–based Macy’s department store and then head The Macy’s parade on 34th Street (hence the title). That ended up being the right decision as Kris spread joy throughout the city.
This is a Christmas classic that is sure to melt even the most cynical hearts of all non-believers in Santa Claus and how he brings joy wherever he goes. The movie has often been considered to be the best Christmas movie ever, hands down. It has won major Academy Awards — Best Supporting Actor for Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle and one each for Best Story and Best Adapted Screenplay.
The story itself is also found in a book version; Miracle on 34th Street by Valentine Davies is a best-seller based on the story he wrote for the 1947 film. It has now gone on to become a popular musical production too.
This holiday production is sure to bring the energy and magic of Christmas to the Madinat Theatre Mainstage this season. The meaning of Christmas and the joy it brings to people (naughty or nice) is seen in this script.
The musical will be performed twice a day until December 30. This joyous musical that comes on stage is pure family entertainment at its best. It is the perfect holiday treat!
