Top 5 Events This Week in Santa Cruz County
Join us for MCT’s 10th production (and first since 2012) of its very own
“Miracle”, the play that MCT’s founders wrote and first produced in 1982. The
holiday favorite tells the heart-warming story, familiar to most from the
classic 1947 film, of a gentle old man named Kris Kringle who believes he is
Santa Claus and who uses kindness and generosity to convince a little girl and
then everyone else that he is, in fact, St. Nick. MCT’s founders wrote the
script for “Miracle” in 1982, and it has been updated several times since. This
will be MCT’s 10th production of its “Miracle”, and its first since 2012.
Directed by Peter Gelblum.
