CHICAGO – For immediate release. The ever-relevant story of the overworked Macy’s Department Store public relations executive and the young daughter she raises to be too realistic to be believe in Santa Claus will be delivered as an old-time radio play complete with onstage sound effects by The Artistic Home company for six performances only. Miracle on 34th Street: A Radio Play is perfect for families looking for a fun outing that captures the spirit of the season. Full of laughs, holiday magic and music, Miracle on 34th Street: A Radio Play tells how the department store Santa who comes in to Macy’s as an emergency substitute challenges the mother and daughter’s refusal to believe when he claims to be the one and only Kris Kringle. Can he prove to them and the world that Santa is real while making one little girl's dreams come true?
The production will be directed by The Artistic Home Artistic Director Kathy Scambiaterra and performed by a cast including ensemble members Frank Nall, Julian Hester and Kristin Collins. They will be joined by Jenna Steege, Angela DeMarco, Moira Hughes, Liam Dahlborn, Sean Harklerode, Mike Krystosek, Michael Denini, John Laflamboy, Josh Volkers, RJ Coleman, Brian Sheridan, Christopher Donaldson, Robert Dean and Zach Wziontka.
