Don’t miss “Miracle on 34th Street”

Presented by Cedar Springs High School and “H” Productions

ENT-Miracle-Poster-FinalThe students of Cedar Springs High School are proud to present the heartwarming   holiday classic “Miracle on 34th Street” by Valentine Davies. You won’t want to miss the story of the real Kris Kringle (played by Steven Reed), who gets roped into replacing another Santa for the Macy’s parade, and then gets hired to be Santa at Macy’s for the rest of the season. The parade organizer (Ashley Sissell) doesn’t believe in Santa Claus, and neither does her daughter Susan (Erika Cardinal 6th), and so, Kris sets out on a mission to convert them. Aiding Kris is rising legal star Fred Gailey (senior Nick Bonarski). Everything starts well enough at Macy’s, but the store psychologist believes Kris to be insane, and misrepresents his mental health to the store. Fred ends up with the unenviable task of proving to a politically minded judge (senior Tim Mol) that Kris is indeed who he says he is. With the help from his little friend, Susan, and hundreds of other children, everyone has their beliefs reaffirmed or rekindled by this man who “does nothing more than bring the true spirit of Christmas to everyone he meets.”

Over the past 3 months, this cast and crew of over 70 students have spent countless hours after school and on the weekends rehearsing, memorizing lines, building the set and working to make this the best show it can be. “This is, hands down, the biggest set we have ever built on this stage,” remarked Justin Harnden, director and High School drama teacher. “It includes 3 different platforms, a 16 foot raised podium and a rotating stage. These kids have worked hard on not only building the set, but becoming part of the story and really making this show their own. After three months of hard work, it is exciting to see it all come together.”

Be sure not to miss such a timeless Christmas classic. “Miracle on 34th St.” takes place only one weekend for three shows on December 10, 11, and 12 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are only $7.00 and are available from any cast member, at the high school office, Cedar Springs Public Library, and at the door. For more information call 616-696-1200.
