Miracle on 34th Street - A Radio Play by John Cook
Adapted from the novel by Valentine Daves, written in collaboration with Teri Loretto-Valentic & Nicole Milne.
This is a radio play, where the theatre audience is transported back to the Golden Age of radio, where words, music and sound effects alone tell the story.
Miracle on 34th Street is a classic tale of believing in something when common sense tells you not to. Kris Kringle is a kindly old man hired by Macy’s department store as their Santa. When he starts directing shoppers to other stores, for items not available at Macy’s, most people see this as the true spirit of Christmas. Others don’t, especially when he claims to actually be the real Santa. He ends up being put on trial for lunacy, and it is up to his friend Fred Galey to prove that Kris is indeed the one and only Santa. A great, family-orientated story for all ages.
Produced by Gladstone Theatre, Ottawa ON, December 2012.
