December 3rd - 19th
Fridays & Saturdays @ 7:30
Sundays @ 3pm
at the New Phoenix Theatre

don't miss this trippy holiday mis-adventure that takes audiences one day later in the classic tale Miracle on 34th Street as a mischievous Santa uses his Christmas magic in some mind-bending ways to show sweet little Zazu the ugly truth about racial segregation in her family's new housing development.

the time has come at last for our
