St. Nick himself stars in Miracle on 34th Street at Triumvirate

In the 1930’s while darkness was moving across Europe a movie of faith and believing in your dream was created in Hollywood written by Valentine Davies. The movie quickly became a classic and inspired millions of Americans to not lose hope during the hard holidays of WWII. The Miracle on 34th Street became a Christmas tradition and is still aired annually on major television networks. This year for the first time the stage play of the Miracle on 34th Street came to the Triumvirate Theatre, directed by Delana Duncan. The Miracle premiered last weekend and will play again this Friday and Saturday with Friday’s show being a dinner theatre. “The playwright took the original film script and made it into a stage play that follows the original story very closely, which makes it a challenging stage experience to direct with so many different scene settings, but we had fun including the audience and getting them immersed in the show through an interactive experience,” Duncan told the Dispatch.

The dinner will include the show and a shrimp dinner for only $36.00 and tickets for the Saturday performance are $15.00. “We also are inviting the children to bring their letters to Santa Claus and we will mail them to the North Pole for them,” said Duncan. Growing up Delana said the show had impacted her, “The biggest theme of the show is faith, believing in things that are hard to believe in because you can’t see them. As a child I loved faith and the things my imagination grabbed on to and made the magic come to life. Imagination is one of the most powerful gifts we have and I love stirring kid’s dreams,” said Duncan.

Sophie Micciche does a stellar portrayal of Susan Walker and the bringing out the magic of a dream that may be even too large for the real Kris Kringle to pull off. Tickets available on line at triumviratetheatre.org.
