Weekend Entertainment | Christmas Blitz Is On

Many folks around here swear they can’t get into the Christmas spirit until they see “Miracle on Easy Street.”

They’re in luck, as the sparkly holiday song and dance revue will return this weekend.

A blizzard of music, dance, comedy and cute kids, with scads of costumed dancers and twinkling lights, it could ring the bell on Ebenezer Scrooge’s Cheer-O-Meter.

Easy Street Productions has been presenting “Miracle” – which has a cast of thousands (give or take) – for a good 30 years.

This year’s show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Powers Auditorium in Youngstown.
