When an old man in a retirement home who calls himself Kris Kringle gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s, he unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa concluding in a dramatic decision by the court. Miracle is a heartwarming holiday story that will make true believers of all audience members, in which love, decency, and generosity of spirit are their own rewards.

Founded in 1947, Avon Players is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit community theatre located along the winding banks of Stoney Creek in the quaint Historic District of Rochester Hills, only about two miles from the heart of downtown Rochester. Avon Players has been performing shows in its unique A-frame theater since 1965. With ticket prices set at a fraction of those at professional theatre (plus free parking and concessions on a donation basis) a family of four can experience a sensational live theatrical event for about the cost of one ticket at a “downtown” venue.  And for regular theatre-goers, an affordable outing can be an even better bargain by taking advantage of Avon Players’ season ticket packages, which yield discounts of up to 24% per ticket.  Additionally, season ticket holders enjoy priority seating selection and voting privileges in Avon’s annual “Stoney Awards.” Additional information regarding tickets and productions is available by calling the Avon Players box office at 248.608.9077 or by visiting the website: www.avonplayers.org.
