Hol­i­day clas­sic takes cen­ter stage at his­toric Royal The­atre

The Saline Courier - - FRONT PAGE - By Sarah Perry [email protected]­ton­courier.com

The Royal Play­ers will present “Mir­a­cle on 34th Street: The Mu­si­cal” at the his­toric Royal The­atre in Down­town Ben­ton be­gin­ning today. Per­for­mances are sched­uled at 7 p.m. today through Dec. 7, and Dec. 12 through 14 along with 2 p.m. Dec. 8 and 15.

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’ 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.

Ticket prices are $15 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion, $12 for se­niors aged 60 and above, mem­bers of the mil­i­tary and col­lege stu­dents with valid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and $6 for 12th grade and be­low.
