Two Christmas classics open at the Hippodrome Theater stage over the next seven days.

Starting Friday, “Miracle on 34th Street” will debut at 8 p.m. 

“Miracle on 34th Street” transports the audience back to the musical radio play adapted from the 1947 broadcast as the cast retells the story of a last-minute replacement Santa for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade who claims to be the real Kris Kringle, spurring the belief of a little girl that brings love, happiness and the heart of the holiday spirit.
