PRESS RELEASE | Clarksville Little Theatre’s “Miracle on 34th Street”

Based on the 1947 classic film starring Maureen O’Hara, Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwenn and John Payne, the story revolves around an elderly gentleman who believes he is the real Santa and a little girl who learns to have faith in the magic of the Christmas season.

In this Christmas classic, Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle soon gains both popularity and love with children and adults alike at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan. When he insists, however, that he really is Santa Claus, a competency hearing is held to determine Kringle’s sanity and on whether he could possibly be who he says he is.

Rachel Allen plays Doris Walker; Kara Marchant plays her daughter, Susan Walker. James Ballard plays the defense attorney, Fred Gayley; Richard Seng plays the psychiatrist, Mr. Sawyer, and Tom Morton plays the lovable Kris Kringle.

Directed by Rita Hight the cast ensemble also includes Lynda Arkwright, Denver Bays, Adelaide Bingham, Kearstie Burke.
