— ‘Tis nearly the season and a local mayor is just one of those getting into the spirit.

Mount Hope Mayor Michael Martin is a featured actor in “A Christmas Tree Miracle,” a Christmas family film that premieres today at 5 p.m. at the Chuck Mathena Center in Princeton. There will be a special Q&A session after the screening.

According to a flier for the event, “A Christmas Tree Miracle” follows the George family, a family that lives a high-class life that catches up to them when they continue to live above their means. The family is taken in by an eccentric Christmas tree farmer and is shown that miracles can come true.

The film also stars Princeton native Kevin Sizemore.
