Think back, way, way back, to when you were an innocent child who believed in Santa Claus and sugar plum fairies. You walked around blissfully ignorant of the dark truth Christmas is a ploy by retailers to grab our money. Well, if just for an hour or two, Miracle on 34th Street takes us back to that innocence. The story of a little girl who meets Kris Kringle, a department store Santa who insists hes the real thing, Miracle is filled with hope, love and other holiday warm-and-fuzzy feelings. There are some bumps along the way (Santa gets sent to the loony bin by a grumpy store exec), but it all turns out well in the end hey, its the holidays, of course theres a happy ending. 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury. Through December 9. For tickets and information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.country-play-house.org. $17 to $20.
