Miracle on 34th Street
Adapted from the Valentine Davies novel by Patricia Di Bendetto Snyder, Will Severin, and John Vreeke, with underscoring and curtain song by Will Severin
Directed by Janet Fisher Collum
December, 2003

From Samuel French, Inc.:

Kris Kringle is the personification of good will and holiday spirit. As Macy's holiday Santa, he enchants children and shoppers so completely that he is deemed dangerous by fellow employees who question his competency and plot to ruin him. A small girl's belief in Santa and the magic of the holiday is at stake in a climactic courtroom decision. This hilarious, tender and charming show for the entire family is a Christmas classic. Originally produced by the New York State Theatre Institute.

''A delight. . . . The play bustles from scene to scene with holiday good cheer.''-Metroland.

''A Christmas gift.''-Albany Times Union.

''Gives kids something to cheer about.''-Daily Gazette.
