Story by VALENTINE DAVIES Screenplay by GEORGE SEATON
Do you believe in magic?
Conjure up the perfect Christmas. Think of tinsel and tingles, whispers and wishes, those thrilling hours when childhood dreams take flight. Now imagine if Christmas was all common sense. No whispers, no secrets. Just cold hard facts wrapped in paper destined for the bin.
That’s Christmas for sensible six-year-old Susan and her mother. But as New York’s cash tills ring out their money-making chimes and shoppers join a race that lasts from Thanksgiving until New Year, an old bearded gentleman turns their rational world – and the city’s cut-throat commercial spirit – upside down.
Featuring It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical is a twinkling seasonal treat for the whole family. The famous story has cast its timeless spell over stage and screen, but the new production of this classic tale at the Playhouse is an enchanted music box gift-wrapped specially for Liverpool. It’s a sparkling Christmas package sent with love, kisses… and plenty of fabulous festive magic.
