I had the privilege of attending the Theatre at the Center’s production of Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical this past Saturday. I can easily say this performance is nothing short of amazing and utterly heartwarming. A wonderful story of family, love, tradition, and belief was carefully and thoughtfully performed by the cast of this performance. 


You know it’s the holiday season when  "A Christmas Story” Comes Home is all set up in the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond. If you have never been to this spectacular display, then you don’t yet know what you’re missing! This exhibit is completely free and is open from November 10 - December 31, 2018.

This exhibit is centered on the popular movie - I am sure you have seen once, twice, or more than 20 times - “A Christmas Story.” The various Macy’s window displays showcase the fictional town of Hohman which is really low and behold, the author (and movie narrator) Jean Shepherd’s hometown, Hammond, Indiana!
