Miracle on 34th Street – The Radio Play

December 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Dickens Christmas Radio Play returns to the Auburn Public Theater for a performance of Miracle on 34th Street.

Miracle On 34th Street-The Radio Play. Thanksgiving Day in New York and the Macy’s parade is jeopardized by a tipsy Santa. Fortunately for Doris she finds Kris Kringle to take his place! Things liven up at Macy’s as Kris institutes the real spirit of Christmas by putting the customer’s happiness before profits! The real challenge begins when he is put on trial for his sanity for claiming he’s the real Santa Claus and Fred Gailey sets out to prove it in a court of law. The real victory is when Kris restores the faith of both Mother and Daughter on Christmas morning!

Suspend disbelief, for the year is 1842 and Queen Victoria has arrived in Skaneateles with Charles Dickens, whom she has commissioned to write a Christmas story.

During their monthlong stay, Dickens gains inspiration from a bevy of now-familiar characters, along with finishing school girls, pickpockets and other villagers. The story unfolds each week, as Dickens and his entourage interact with cast members and passersby.

“Dearest friends, I am overjoyed that this festive time of year has returned and Her Majesty Queen Victoria and I will soon be basking in the warmth of a Skaneateles Christmas!” says producing director Jim Greene, who plays Dickens.

Also visiting is Dickens’ friend Washington Irving, who is working on his latest ghost story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Highlights of this year’s season include “Miracle on 34th Street — The Radio Play,” presented at 7 p.m. Dec. 17 at Auburn Public Theater. Tickets are $10.

Dickens Christmas is produced by Scarlett Rat Entertainment.
