BUSHKILL, PA (December 2013) - Fernwood Resort has partnered with nearby Shawnee Playhouse to create a special holiday theater package that includes a stay in a studio villa and two tickets to Shawnee Playhouse's production of the award winning "Miracle on 34th Street" starting from $197 a night Saturday, December 21 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, December 22 at 2:00 pm. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Fernwood Resort, said, "The holidays are a beautiful time in the Pocono Mountains and ideal for a mini getaway that includes live theater at Shawnee Playhouse." She continues, "What better way to get yourself into the holiday spirit than take a weekend getaway, do some shopping at The Crossings Premium Outlets, have dinner then see the show." An adaptation of the classic holiday film, this version with music and lyrics by Mark Sarto, brings to the stage six year old Susan’s doubt about Santa Claus and her transformation to believing in the spirit of Christmas.

In addition to the Playhouse package it offers ski packages with Shawnee and Camelback Mountains, snowtubing, historical tours with the Pocono Indian Museum, and nature packages with the Pocono Environmental Education Center. Bertucci said, "This is a great way to get some early shopping done before the crowds while you can sit back, relax by a fire and unwind.”
