Based on a holiday tale, written by Valentine Davies
and made famous by the movie of the same name, Miracle On 34th Street has music composed by Doug Smith
and book and lyrics by Vern Stefanic. Kris Kringle takes on the cynics among us in this musical adaptation of the popular holiday favorite. A white-bearded gentleman claiming to be the real Santa Claus
brings about a genuine "Miracle on 34th Street," spreading a wave of love throughout New York City, fostering camaraderie between Macy's and Gimbel's Department Stores, and convincing a divorced, cynical single mother, her somber daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus
is no myth.
Filled with humor, spectacle and such wonderful songs as “This Is What I Live For,” “Just Imagine” and “I Believe In Miracles,” Miracle on 34th Street is a traditional celebration of the magic that is Christmas. This joyous, heart-warming musical is pure family entertainment! The movie won three Academy Awards; was ranked 9th by the American Film Institute on 100 years… 100 Cheers, a list of America's most inspiring films; and its fifth best film in the fantasy genre and has been selected for preservation in the United States Film Registry of the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
Toni Triano will star as Kris Kringle, Garrett Long as Doris Walker, Sean Hayden as Fred Gailey, Gene Jones as Dr. Sawyer, Gary Lynch as RH Macy, Marguerite Wilbanks as Dr Pierce, Amelia Rose Allen and Zoe Wilson will alternate as Susan Walker.
The multi-talented ensemble includes, Bjorn Bolinger, Rachel Boone, Chloe Hurst, Jessica Jaros, Peter Marino, Leisa Mather, Joel Pellini, Joshua Phan-Gruber, Jacob Samuels, James Shackelford and Jonathan Stahl.
The production is Directed and Choreographed by WBT favorite, Richard Stafford, who had been at the helm for several WBT productions including; Fiddler On The Roof, Can-Can, George M!, Hairspray, Beauty & The Beast, Gypsy and Singin’ In The Rain.
