BELOIT - Beloit Memorial High School is bringing the magic of Christmas alive with the holiday performance "Miracle on 4th Street."

The show is a compilation of a play, holiday songs and more. Senior Sam Grahn said this year a dance number has been added to go with the performance. Each year "Miracle on 4th Street" follows the same basic foundation, just with new holiday songs. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday in the high school auditorium.

"I've been dancing since I was 4, so any time I can do it is ideal," Grahn said.

Choir teacher Ben Westphal said the show features the top ensembles, the jazz orchestra, the chamber and concert choirs, and theater players.

"It's unique that all of the arts department comes together for the show," Grahn said. "I don't think a lot of schools do that."

Westphal said that this show was an anomaly in that this is the only show where the entire performing arts department comes together.

"I just like how much work the kids put into the transitions to make it a smooth performance," Westphal said.

Grahn said the show is about 90 minutes long.

Westphal said the show has become a tradition at the high school over the last few years.

"It's got holiday music and is a fun, light-hearted event for the whole family," Westphal said.

The play centers around orphan children who are placed with families over the holidays. Between scenes of the play there are many musical performances and much more.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for seniors and students and may be purchased at the door.
