Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center Presents A Live Radio Show: Miracle on 34th Street

The Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center is proud to present A Live Radio Show: Miracle on 34th Street at the State Theatre for three performances: Friday, December 7th and Saturday, December 8th at 7:30p.m., and Sunday, Dec 9th at 3:00p.m.

A Live Radio Show: Miracle on 34th Street is directed by Glenda Gonzalez and features familiar local actors as well as first time State performers from the area.  APPAC’s lighting and sound guru, Tony Broadbent, will be creating the atmosphere for this holiday season family favorite.

The live radio show features Melanie Flint as Doris (Maureen O’Hara in the original 1947 film version). Rick Schlussell as Fred (John Payne), Susan (as was common during heyday of live radio shows for a child’s role to be performed by adult, in this version we are presenting local actress Pam Harrold). The beloved Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn in the film version) is performed by local actor Dwayne Causie.

A Live Radio Show:  Miracle on 34th Street is the story of what takes place in New York City following Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, as people are left wondering whether or not a department store Santa might be the real thing. Six year old Susan (Natalie Wood in the film version) discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. After meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in.

Tickets are adults $15, students $10, and children 12 & under $5. Tickets will be available at the door, with a limited number of seats available for advance purchase online at, or call the box office at 530-885-0156. The box office opens 90 minutes before show time for each performance.
