Auditions “Miracle on 34th Street”, Magenta Theater – Monday, September 23rd, 6:30pm
Magenta’s December show is the stage adaptation of the classic film, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, a film that warms the hearts of families every year at Christmas time. The original movie starred Maureen O’Hara and a very young Natalie Wood. Magenta’s casting promises to be equally as charming.
For those unfamiliar with the story: Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, who plots to have Kris shanghaied to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy.
Auditions are open to the public. Acting Roles are volunteer only; no pay. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script; no monologues are required.
