Music Theatre of Idaho brings the much-loved 1947 holiday film “Miracle on 34th Street” to life with Meredith Willson’s (“The Music Man”) musical version. This little-known musical beautifully tells the story of Kris Kringle, an old man who claims to be Santa Claus. When he becomes the store Santa at Macy’s, he changes the lives of a little girl and her mother who don’t believe in Christmas as well as that of a young lawyer who defends him when his sanity is questioned.
