A new touring production of “Miracle on 34th Street” will debut Friday at the Robson Performing Arts Center in Claremore. Capstone Theatricals, an Alabama company that specializes in touring productions, has spent the past two weeks in Claremore rehearsing for this tour. “Miracle on 34th Street” is based on the story by Valentine Davies, about an elderly gentleman who fills in for the Santa Claus in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. He does such a good job that he’s hired to be the Santa at Macy’s flagship store, where he creates a furor when he claims to be the real Santa Claus. The story became an Academy Award-winning film in 1947. Tulsa writer and director Vern Stefanic wrote the book and lyrics for this adaptation, and Douglas Smith composed the score. Theatre Tulsa premiered the work in 1993, and it has been performed around the country since. Ed Whitehead, producer and general manager of Capstone Theatricals, said, “This classic show is just what is needed this year. It’s a show that reminds us that hope, kindness and goodness still exist.”
Performance: 7 p.m. Friday Robson PAC, 101 E. Stuart Roosa Claremore, OK 74017
