NEW ULM - New Ulm Actors Community Theatre is holding auditions for its holiday play, "Miracle on 34th Street, a Radio Play" on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre in the District Administration Center, also known as the DAC or former Middle School, 10 N. State Street in New Ulm, for performers ages 10-90.
This staged "radio play" requires no memorization and only five rehearsals on December 3, 6, 10, 12 & 13 are required. All rehearsals are from 7 to 9:30 pm.
Three performances are slated for Dec.14 & 15 at 7:30 & Dec. 16 at 2 p.m.
Following in the tradition set last year with a LIVE radio broadcasts of "It's a Wonderful Life," in New Ulm, Minnesota, NUACT is proud to present Kent Menzel's original radio adaptation of the classic 1947 movie, "Miracle on 34th Street," the heartwarming story of a holiday miracle. Set in New York around Thanksgiving, a Macy's department store Kris Kringle brings the joy and happiness of the holiday season to a little girl, her mother and a stressed out lawyer. Is this Kris Kringle the real Santa Claus? A court will have to decide.
Executive Director Paul Warshauer is directing the production. Josh Menzel is on Sound, and Zac Stowe is on lights. Keara Roberts will serve as the "Radio Stage Director," reprising her role from last year.
Nothing is necessary to prepare for auditions although actors with experience should bring a head shot and rsum. Ample parking is available in the back of the District Administration Center on Washington Street.
Persons who cannot make the auditions may call or e-mail NUACT for alternative times.
