When a department store Santa claims he’s the real Kris Kringle, his case gets taken all the way to the Supreme Court, and a little girl’s belief makes the difference in the ‘miracle.’ With live Foley effects and a score of holiday carols, Miracle on 34th Street is a beloved musical that will melt even the most cynical of hearts.
This version of Miracle on 34th Street is adapted from the 1947 Lux Radio Broadcast by Lance Arthur Smith with added original songs and arrangements by Jon Lorenz. It will be performed as a radio play, with most of the dialogue being read, although some memorization will be necessary.
This will be the third radio play that Elkhart Civic Theatre has produced in recent Christmas seasons, and the casts always have a great time recreating the look, feel, and sound of old-time radio. Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Actors will be asked to sing as well.
