Miracle on 34th Street Live Musical Radio Play

     This Holiday Season, the Towle Theater is pleased to present Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play.  Adapted from the 1947 Lux Radio Broadcast by Lance Arthur Smith with original songs and arrangements by Jon Lorenz.  This production is under the direction of Towle Theater’s Managing Director, Jeff Casey with Musical and Vocal Direction by Elizabeth Tuazon. 

     When a department store Santa claims he’s the real Kris Kringle, his case gets taken all the way to the Supreme Court and a little girl’s belief makes the difference in the ‘miracle.’ With live Foley effects and a score of holiday carols, Miracle on 34th Street is a beloved musical that will melt even the most cynical of hearts.


     The Towle welcomes back Mandi Corrao from Chicago (previously seen in First Date) and Marty Grubbs from Highland (previously directed Play Dates and Jewtopia).  Newcomers to the Towle include Ava Elizabeth Reese (Dyer), Christopher Place (Chicago), Trillium Falotico (Round Lake Beach, IL) and Anthony Augustine (Chicago).  Our resident musical Director, Elizabeth Tuazon will be playing the piano as well as the Foley artist for the show.
