The Franklin County Arts Council (FCAC) and the Franklin Players presented two showings of the holiday classic “Miracle on 34th Street” Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at the Windsor Theatre in Hampton. The cast hosted one nighttime and one afternoon performance, both of which saw good turnouts.

     According to Karen Ferris, who co-directed the play with Moli Gerken, 175 people attended Saturday night and 205 turned out Sunday afternoon.

     “It was great. All the players were thrilled to death, and I know the audience really enjoyed it,” said Ferris. “They were very receptive audience – you could kind of tell with all the laughter.”
