Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play is Coming to the Oregon Cabaret Theatre for the Holidays
Running from November 21st to December 31st, Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play is adapted from Jon Lorenz’ 1947 Lux Radio Broadcast of the classic Christmas story.
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 performed live on stage, Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play is a unique holiday theatre treat. “The dual task of entertaining a live studio audience and an imaginary radio audience was an incredible challenge,” says director Galloway Stevens of researching classic radio broadcasts of the era. “The craft of Foley art – which helps set the scenic atmosphere – was much like watching a ballet with both eyes and ears. My team has really immersed themselves into this medium – of conveying a solid story for anyone listening “over the air” while also providing a riveting performance to our live ‘studio’ audience.”
