Miracle on 34th. Street
“This is a tale that we want to believe in, that creates a world we seem to desperately desire, free of the blatant commercialism that surrounds us, where love and decency and generosity of spirit are their own rewards. What we want Christmas to be all about, really.”
Santa Cruz Sentinel
This perennial Christmas classic tells the story of a little old man named Kris Kringle, living in a retirement home, who gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers in the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, who plots to have Kris shanghaied to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy.
Director David LeMaster sees this production as a unique opportunity to mix the wonder of live theatre with actual film. LeMaster feels “the concept is to wrap ourselves around the original film and the old Santa Claus. Thomas Meek will be helping us achieve our effect”. LeMaster predicts that under the direction of himself and Jeff Coletta that the production will be full of wonderful surprises and joyful celebration. He believes that this story truly embraces everything about the traditional Christmas Story. “The Spirit of Christmas makes us want to be better people and kinder to others”, said LeMaster. “This play embraces that spirit”.
