Coral Gables Tree Lighting

The Musical Miracles and the cast of Madeline's Christmas will be performing outside of Coral Gables City Hall as part of the Tree Lighting Ceremony, according to Actors' Playhouse. Madeline's Christmas is the holiday offering for children at The Miracle Theater, and the Miracles are sponsored by the Playhouse.

The Musical Miracles is a talented troupe of youth who audition to be part of a year-round intensive musical training program under the direction of the Actors' Playhouse Educational Director. They gain experience developing careers in musical theatre, admittance into magnet schools, casting in television commercials, and as performers in productions demanding youth actors at Actors’ Playhouse. Visit their MySpace page to see their performance schedule.

Madeline’s Christmas is a delightful musical based on the popular Madeline book series by Ludwig Bemelmans. "In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.” With this classic storybook line, the audience enters the world of Madeline’s Christmas. It plays through December 24th at Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater, with special performances on December 23rd and Christmas Eve. Details and tickets available online.

The ceremony is Friday, December 7 in Merrick Park, beginning at 5 p.m. Merrick Park is transformed into a winter wonderland offering lots of activities for the family from 5-10 p.m. including carnival games, trackless train, face painting, candy land and more.

At 7 p.m., members of the City Commission will welcome the arrival of Santa Claus and will turn on the light switch for the gigantic holiday tree outside City Hall.

This evening, children can take pictures with the old bearded fellow dressed in red from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. After this day, Merrick Park will be open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. every day until December 23. Come take pictures with Santa on Thursdays and Fridays from 5-10 p.m. or Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 10 p.m.
