ABOUT THE SHOW
Join us for a night under the stars on the new Riverfront Esplanade North Lawn along historic Beach Street in Downtown Daytona Beach for a family holiday classic from the writer of the musical theatre classic, "The Music Man!", and based on the movie of the same name. Miracle on 34th Street The Musical features a book and score by none other than Meredith Willson.
Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn't want her six-year-old Susan's head filled with romantic notions, especially the notion that Santa Clause is real... Their neighbor, Fred Gailey, tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed, but when it turns out that Macy's Santa may, in fact, be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts.
Filled with humor and such beloved songs as "Pinecones and Hollyberries," "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" and "My State, My Kansas," this joyous, heartwarming musical is pure family entertainment! Get your tickets to Miracle on 34th Street The Musical Today!
Parents need to be aware that the show does start by showing a tipsy Santa, who was to be in the parade, which gave the real Kris Kringle the chance to take over as Santa in the parade. And the entire basis of the show centers around the disbelief in Santa Claus: Susan was never allowed to believe in Santa or other things that are not tangible. So parents may want to be prepared to answer some similar questions. However, as the story progresses, Susan is shown that “Faith is believing in something without seeing”
DRUGS AND ALCOHOL
Alcohol is mentioned twice. In the first act, a bottle of alcohol is featured as part of the story.
The show presents antiquated notions of women's roles in society, marriage, and relationships. It is set in the post WWII era, which provides the opportunity to share with kids how things were different. One of the main characters, Fred Gaily, was in the Army, and uses words like “dames” in reference to some ladies and “the head” when talking about the restroom.
WE HOPE IT NEVER RAINS,
BUT IN CASE IT DOES...
Ticket purchases are non-refundable. Ticket exchanges can be made by contacting the box office via email or phone up to 48 hours before the performance for which you purchased tickets. Ticket exchanges are not allowed less than 48 hours before the performance for which you purchased tickets.
The start time of the performance may be delayed or the performance may be interrupted due to inclement weather or other reasons. If a performance is cancelled before one hour of playing time has elapsed, including intermission, your ticket will serve as your rain check. Rain checks may be redeemed for a ticket of the same value for any performance of the same show, provided the performance you choose to use your rain check for has available seats.
If a performance is given after a delayed start or resumes after an interruption, rain checks are not valid and may not be exchanged or refunded. We will make every effort to present the performance, and typically will not cancel the performance before 9:30pm. A delayed start time or the length of an interruption in the performance will be determined by theatre management on a per case basis.
Notice of delays or cancellations will be made over the theatre public address system and will also be posted on BSRT's social media and on our website.
In the case of a cancelled performance, beginning the next day the box office is open, rain checks may be exchanged for a ticket of the same value for any performance of the same show, provided the performance you choose to use your rain check for has available seats. Rain checks may also be donated back to Beach Street Repertory Theatre. Rain checks must be redeemed by the closing performance of the production either via email, phone, or at the box office one hour prior to a performance. Only actual, legible tickets, in their original form will be accepted as rain checks.
