A Miracle on 34th Street Classic Radiocast
Written and directed by Nathan Jerkins
December 4-27, 2014
Featuring Sarah Marie Curry, Brock England, Joe Hartman, Julie Linnard and Dirk Van Allen
The players at the fictional KPNF radio station return to put their stamp on a brand new holiday classic - Miracle on 34th Street. As they bring to life the entire story through dozens of character voices and live foley sound effects, you'll be re-introduced to Kris Kringle, the charming Macy's mascot put on trial for claiming to be real Santa Claus. Besieged by commercialism, skepticism and disillusionment, winning the trial and restoring his friends' faith in the most precious, intangible parts of Christmas will require of Kris nothing short of a miracle!
