WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Just when you think you know the story, here comes a twist. Thalian Association is performing Miracle on 34th Street the musical.
The beloved story is the same. A gentleman claiming to be the real Kris Kringle visits Macy's and helps convince a cynical single mother, her somber daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus is no myth.
"I think it appeals to people on different levels, different age groups, and you can interpret what the spirit of Christmas means, what Santa Claus really means in different ways," said actor Joe Gallison.
This version has a score of music, the buzz of live theater and former soap opera star Joe Gallison playing the head elf himself.
"It's a wonderful role," said Gallison. "You can do most anything you want with it, and it's just been fun. I love doing this. The cast is great. The kids are fabulous. It's just a great time."
