Theatres may be dark this year, but Christmas can still shine brightly for kids and their families. We are pleased to announce that the streaming video of the 2019 World Premiere, critically acclaimed performance of Eleanor’s Very Merry Christmas Wish – The Musical, is coming to your home for Holiday 2020.

Eleanor’s Very Merry Christmas Wish – The Musical tells the story of a rag doll named Eleanor who lives in the magical world of The North Pole. Despite her love for her family there, including Santa, Mrs. “Cookie” Claus, Clara Claus, and the elves – Twinkle, Sprinkle, and Sparkle - Eleanor’s very merry Christmas wish is for a best friend and home of her own.

Realizing that wishing is not enough, she writes a letter to Santa expressing her dream. The letter opens the door to answering many questions, and to the journey which leads to her wish (and others) coming true.

The 65-minute musical written by Denise McGowan Tracy, with eight original songs by composer/lyricist Kathleen Butler-Duplessis and McGowan Tracy, is bursting with heartwarming lessons for kids of all ages of the importance of friendship, family, and working hard to make your dreams come true.

Opening night is November 27, however, pre-orders are available NOW. Purchase this heartwarming holiday classic today, and as a valued patron to McCain Auditorium, enter the Promo Code MCCMAN20 when you register to purchase. Be sure to check out the “Eleanor Very Merry Christmas Party Box” options to enhance your viewing experience.

Your unique household viewing access code will be emailed to you on November 27. It will include instructions on how to watch from the comfort of your home, surrounded by family and friends. Your ticket grants you 48-hour access to watch any time between November 27 and December 27. You don’t want to end up on “The Naughty List” so be sure not to hit “Play” until you are gathered around and ready to enjoy the show.
