Audition for 'Miracle on 34th Street: A Radio Play' November 9 & 10!

La Crosse, WI – 10/30/20 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the holiday radio play, Miracle on 34th Street, on November 9 and 10, starting at 6 p.m. Auditions will be held via Zoom. Registration by November 8 is required to receive a Zoom link and audition time.

No one can deny it – there’s something special about the Santa Claus at Macy’s this year. With his snowy beard and twinkling eyes, he is brimming with the true spirit of Christmas. Macy’s turns upside down when he sends customers to other stores for the toys they really want. He himself gets wrapped up in the trial of the century with his claim to be the real Kris Kringle. Now kindness, joy, love and everything Santa Claus stands for is at risk. What can he do to make the world believe in him?  La Crosse Community Theatre presents this beloved story in the style of a 1940s radio show. With a cast of charismatic characters, handmade sound effects, fun jingles, and your favorite carols, the whole family will want to tune in for this holiday gift from LCT to you.

Miracle on 34th Street will be directed by Mary Cate Wesling. LCT is seeking 3 men, 3 women, 1 boy age 13-18, and 1 girl age 10-13 to sing and play multiple roles. Auditionees will sing the chorus of 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' without accompaniment and complete a cold reading from the script. To register for an audition time, please complete the online audition form.

Rehearsals are Monday - Friday, November 16 - December 11 at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts at 428 Front Street South in downtown La Crosse. While rehearsals will be conducted in person, temperature checks, health screenings, masks, and social distancing are required.
