Miracle on 34th Street (Lewis Family Playhouse) Rancho Cucamonga

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry—Santa Claus is coming to town! Highly esteemed local theatre group Rancho Cucamonga Community Theatre invites you to celebrate the season with a stage adaptation of the classic holiday film, Miracle on 34th Street. This family favorite will return to the Lewis Family Playhouse on Saturdays and Sundays from December 2 – 10, 2017. Gold Level tickets are priced at $20.00 for General, $18.00 for Seniors, and $16.00 for Youth. All Platinum Level tickets are priced at $22.50.


It’s 1947 post-war New York and, by chance, Kris Kringle lands a job as Macy’s Santa, unleashing waves of good will throughout the Big Apple—even inciting a dash of magic in the heart of a very practical little girl. When the Macy’s vocational “counselor” brands Kris as deluded and dangerous, the jolly saint ends up in a court competency hearing where both his freedom and the joys of childhood fantasy are at stake. This is a tale we all want to believe in—where love, decency, and generosity of spirit are their own rewards. Share this perennial holiday favorite with the entre family this season!
