November 21, 2013

"The name of the Beloit Memorial production is inspired by the 1947 movie Miracle on 34th Street that revolves around the famous holiday parade sponsored by Macy’s department store headquartered on 34th Street in New York City.

Also participating are student artists. “It is something of a variety show,” he says, “featuring sounds of the winter season with bold lighting, song selections, a theatre element and opportunities for soloists and small group ensembles."
