Pushcart Players: A Season of Miracles

Pushcart Players is the award-winning professional touring theater company specializing in arts education for children.

Perfect for grades K-6.


“Holiday Tales – A Season of Miracles” is a sparkling collection of holiday stories from different cultures. With a book and lyrics by Ruth Fost, tales within this heartwarming musical include O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi,” an original tale set in Nigeria entitled, “The Kwanzaa Kite,” a fanciful tale from The Wise Folk of Chelm – “The Chanukah Miracle,” and E.T.A Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker.” Crafted and set to music by Tony Award-Winner Larry Hochman, with the timeless tone of each classic piece, this magical presentation is designed to warm the hearts, and perhaps change the perspectives, of young audiences as they think about the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season.
