Miracle on 34th Street playing at Round Barn Theatre

With some time of off school for the kids coming up, I always try to squeeze in a little over-nighter or short getaway during the holiday break. For those families who'd like to get away, but not travel far, Indiana's Amish Country is a great option. We like to stay at the Splash Universe Shipshewana, which has an indoor water park. It's a great place to have fun as a family while it's cold outside.

I was looking up what's going on in that area this month and I see that the Round Barn Theatre at Amish Acres is having a performance of Miracle on 34th Street. Sounds to me like a wonderful way to spend a chilly evening with family.

Details are below. Tickets can be ordered online at

November 14 – December 31
Adapted by Mountain Community Theater from the novel by Valentine Davies; based upon the Twentieth Century Fox motion picture Miracle on 34th Street.
Musical Arrangements by Travis Smith

Produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.

Adapted from the novel by Valentine Davies and the hit MGM film, this musical play tells the classic tale of Kris Kringle, a charming elderly gentleman who stumbles into a job as the department store Santa Claus at Macy’s in New York City.  Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City when he ignores instructions to steer parents to goods that Macy’s sells, and instead refers them to other stores to find exactly what their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing to prove to the world that he is in fact Santa Claus. Especially at stake is one little girl’s, Susan Walker, belief that dreams really do come true if you will open your heart and believe.
