Sturgeon Bay’s TAP’s Production of “Miracle on 34th Street” Captures the Spirit of Christmas

Turn back the clock to the 1940s and set the dial for a double dose of holiday nostalgia as Third Avenue Playhouse presents Miracle on 34th Street: The Radio Show.

Cleverly conceived and drawn directly from the 1947 film classic, the production re-imagines the much-loved tale of the man who calls himself Kris Kringle and his unusual determination to spread the spirit of Christmas. A liberal sprinkling of local references adds to the sense that this timeless tale of goodwill might just as easily have happened in our town – or yours.

Directed by Bill Bauernfeind, the production is a joint venture of TAPWorks and For Kids By Kids, TAP’s children’s theatre arts program. Appearing in the production are Josh Augustson, David Clowers, Garrett Cohn, Lola DeVillers, Dennis Connolly, Andy Fahrenkrug, Ben Fahrenkrug, Liz Fahrenkrug, Kathleen Harris, Patrick Kitt, Ari Krause, Jenna Lee, Monica Lenius, Kole Mallien, Anne St. Henry, Melanie Samonds, Katherine Scheer, Jean Severson, and Julie Stratton.

Eight performances will be held from Dec. 2 – 5 and Dec. 9 – 12. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows are at 7:30 pm. Sunday matinees begin at 2 pm. Tickets for Miracle on 34th Street: The Radio Play are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $8 for children.
