Theater – November 23 – 25, Friday & Saturday 7:30 pm, Sunday 2:00 pm, Blue Ridge Community Theater, Blue Ridge *
“Miracle on 34thStreet” – A heart-warming classic.  By chance, Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. Kris unleashes waves of good will by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, who plots to institutionalize Kris, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa.
