34th Street cast

A post was left asking about the cast for "Miracle on 34th St.” Posted below is the cast announcement press release, which will appear in Arts Quincy during November. I am greatly looking forward to working with this group of people, some of which have appeared on stage at QCT and several brand new faces to Quincy audiences.


Miracle on 34th Street Cast Announcement

Quincy Community Theatre will present Miracle on 34th Street November 27-29 and December 2-6.

In the beloved Christmas Classic, Miracle on 34th Street, Kris Kringle (portrayed by Kevin Payne) is the personification of good will and the holiday spirit. As Santa at Macy’s Department Store, he enchants both children and shoppers until he is deemed as dangerous by his co-workers who question his competency. A young girl’s belief in Santa and the magic of the Holiday Season is at stake in a climactic courtroom decision. Miracle on 34th Street is a hilarious, tender, and charming American Holiday Classic that your entire family is sure to enjoy.

Auditions for 34th Street.

I can hardly believe the time has come for yet another set of auditions. It seems as though we just held auditions for "The Producers".

Miracle on 34th Street auditions will be on Monday September 21st from 6:30 - 8:30 for children ages 7-15 and from 8:30 - ??? for ages 16-100. If you have every thought about auditioning for a show at QCT this is the time to do it. Miracle on 34th Street has many roles available for all ages and experience levels. If you have any questions about auditioning please call me and I would be happy to let you know what to expect or just give you some encouragement.

What you can expect at auditions...
Meet new people
Read scenes from the show
And More Fun.

Scripts are available in the QCT office for a 2-day check out. Take the script home read it and get familiar with the story and the characters. At auditions you will be paired up with other people and given a chance to rehearse the scene privately with them first and then individual groups will be called to the audition room where you will act the scene out for a group of 5-6 people. It is as painless as that. There is now need to be scared or nervous. I have never known anyone to walk out with bite marks. The most important thing to remember at an audition is that I want you to succeed, because if you succeed you will make my job easier. I look forward to seeing all of you at auditions on Monday.

Break a Leg!
