Rehearsals: Miracle on 34th St.

ACTion Community Theatre is super-delighted to announce that we have secured the amateur rights to stage ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ for our December 2018 Christmas production!

Based upon the classic 1947 Twentieth Century Fox screenplay by Valentine Davis and adapted for the stage by Mountain Community Theater, the show promises to be a delightful, heart-warming Christmas production; the production will feature a live 3-piece band playing seasonal music from the 30s / 40s. [NOTE: this is a play with incidental music NOT a musical!]
