Greater Boston Stage Company Will Present MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET
Greater Boston Stage Company presents Miracle on 34th Street - based on the much-loved motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox. Directed by Associate Artistic Director, Ilyse Robbins, Miracle on 34th Street reminds us that if you really believe, anything can happen. Performances run November 29 - December 22, 2019. The Press Opening is Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 7:00pm.
Miracle on 34th Street celebrates the season by taking us to Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the 1940's where Kris Kringle steps in as a last-minute replacement. When he claims to be the true Santa Claus, he needs to convince the doubters, including a little girl longing to find something to believe in.
"The miracle of 34th street is that people learn to believe - both in oneself and in the kindness of others. It is about faith. Not necessarily in the religious sense, but rather faith in what is possible," shares Robbins. She continues, "Stories about kindness and goodness are needed now more than ever. There is such importance simply in the telling of stories like these."
The cast features Barlow Adamson, Juliet Bowler, Margaret Ann Brady, Sara Coombs, William Gardiner, Sarah Gazdowicz, Arthur Gomez, Jade Guerra, Michael Jennings Mahoney, David Jiles, Jr., Gary Thomas Ng and Emme Shaw. As part of The Young Company Meets Mainstage program, the cast also includes Young Company actors Mia Galego, Shea Killeen, Graham Layton, Addison McWayne, Gwendolyn Symes, Norah Symes and Young Company Alum Stephen Zubricki IV, making his GBSC Mainstage debut.
