Tickets are available for Indian Valley Theatre’s presentation of “Miracle on 34th Street,” directed by Debbie Merkel of Sandwich. The production will be staged Dec. 6 through 8 at the Sandwich Opera House.

In this classic Christmas tale Doris Walker, Macy’s no-nonsense special events director, finds the actor hired to play Santa Claus intoxicated only moments before the start of the big Thanksgiving Day parade. In a panic, Doris persuades a nice old man standing nearby to take his place.

The kindly gentleman proves to be a sensation, and is quickly hired to be Macy’s official store Santa. Much to her dismay, Doris soon learns that her new hire claims to be the real Santa. Despite her refusal to believe, many people begin to notice there is something very special about the old man, including her young daughter Susan.

What ensues is an exciting courtroom drama that quickly tests everyone’s belief in the magic and spirit of Christmas.

Performances of “Miracle on 34th Street” will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 and Dec. 7 and 2 p.m. Dec. 8. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets are available online at www.indianvalleytheatre.com or at the box office one hour before each performance.
