'Miracle' Near Route 128 For WTKK's Graham
December 7, 2007 at 3:50 PM (PT)
GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK/BOSTON midday host MICHAEL GRAHAM is hosting the STONEHAM THEATRE's production of "MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET" in a special event for families of middle school students whose principal cancelled their trip to see the show because it involved SANTA CLAUS and an undisclosed number of parents objected to the CHRISTMAS content of a school trip.
STONEHAM, MA's MCCALL MIDDLE SCHOOL cancelled a DECEMBER 19th field trip to see the show, with Principal EVANDER FRENCH JR. telling parents, "While I believe there are valid reasons for participating in such a trip, the objectionable nature of the content overrides these concerns." GRAHAM will host the DECEMBER 21st performance, noting, "As a talk show host, I'm known for defending controversial figures like ANN COULTER and DON IMUS, but now I'm going way out on a limb. I'm defending SANTA CLAUS!"
