Los Altos Stage Company Presents MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET: A Live Radio Play
Fresh off of its production of the critically acclaimed Admissions, the best selling straight play in the company's 25 year history, Los Altos Stage Company happily switches gears to present a family-friendly musical for the holidays.
Nostalgia is in the air when Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play takes the stage. The heartwarming holiday classic is retold in the tradition of a live 1940's era radio broadcast, including live on-stage sound effects, advertisements, original music, and favorite holiday tunes.
A man calling himself Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day parade and is soon appearing regularly at the chain's main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.
Watch the miracle unfold when the belief of a little girl makes all the difference in this iconic story. Select performances will include holiday-related activities and special appearances. More information will be posted on our website as it becomes available.
