Miracle on 34th Street will come to Washington Street Saturday for the second annual live radio Christmas play.

KCII, the Washington Public Library, Main Street Washington, and the Washington Community Theater have teamed up to present the play. He shares the plot of the story, “So there’s a business woman in New York who works for Macy’s. She’s very commercial but she’s very anti-Christmas, and she doesn’t believe in Santa Claus, and she’s teaching her daughter, her young daughter, that there is no Santa Claus. So in enters an older gentleman who substitutes for an intoxicated Santa Claus, and he is actually Kris Kringle. So the story develops to where there is an effort to prove that Kris Kringle is not crazy, that he is actually, truly Santa Claus. It’s just a great story, it’s a fun story.”

The actors will perform the show in the front windows of the library and audience members can bring chairs and blankets to watch outside while listening to the show live. Hanson adds last year, since the show can also be heard live on the KCII online stream and app, he had family in Texas that was able to listen to the play. You can also hear it live on air on AM and FM KCII at 6 p.m. Saturday, and it will be followed by the annual lighting ceremony in Central Park and the lighted holiday parade.
