Miracle on 34th Street on tour

Christmas musical opens 1st November.

Miracle on 34th Street

Based on one of the most popular and best-loved Christmas films of all time, classic musical Miracle on 34th Street will return in 2014 following last year’s UK Premiere, opening at Fairfield Halls, Croydon on Saturday 1st November 2014 prior to a UK Tour. Tickets are on sale now.

Based on the 1947 motion picture starring Maureen O’Hara, John Payne and Natalie Wood, Miracle on 34th Street is the heart-warming story of Susan, a young girl who dreams of a father and brother to make her family whole, and Kris Kringle, a kindly old bearded man who claims he is the real Santa Claus. When employed as a Santa at a department store grotto, Kris quickly spreads a wave of love through New York City, but can he help make Susan’s wish come true? This dazzling musical adaptation is an uplifting family tale of battling cynicism and learning what it truly means to believe.

Miracle on 34th Street has a book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson, best known for writing and composing The Music Man which premiered on Broadway in 1957 and was adapted twice for film in 1962 and 2003. It won the 1958 Tony Award for Best Musical and the cast recording won the first ever Grammy Award for Best Original Cast Album. His work for film includes composing the score for Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score.

The cast features James Murphy as Kris Kringle, Inez Mackenzie as Doris, Ceris Hine as Susan, Jay Rincon as Fred Gaily, Robert Hannouch as Shellhammer and Craig Berry as R H Macy. The cast also includes Jodie Steele, Michaela Cartmell, Emily McAvoy, Scarlett Courtney, Stephanie Willson, Faye Charlotte Ainley, Adam Roberts, Calum Ewan Cameron, David Hinton-Gale and Toby Joyce.

Miracle on 34th Street will be directed by Paul Taylor Mills with choreography by Richard Jones.
