WADESBORO — It’s Christmastime at the Ansonia Theatre, the 2019 MTA Best Theatre Company award winner. They are hard at work keeping the high standard of quality entertainment with their version of “Miracle on 34th Street,” the heartwarming holiday classic about the power of believing.

Tickets sales are already breaking box office records.

Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home played by Mike Railton, gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. He quickly unleashes waves of goodwill with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City. Kris refers parents to other stores to find to find the best deal on the toy their child has asked for.

Macy’s vocational counselor sees Kris as deluded and dangerous and plots to have him committed to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital. Kris ends up in a court competency hearing fighting for his life. Not only is his freedom at stake, but also the heart of one little girl’s belief in Santa and the true meaning of Christmas.

The role of Susan is played by newcomer Maeley Belk of Marshville, and she will absolutely steal your heart.
