Staten Island Vacation 2021: Creative Take on “Miracle on 34th Street” Plays at Little Victory Theater



STATEN ISLAND, NY – “Miracle on 34th Street”, adapted from the original 1947 Lux radio show which continues to be an annual vacation favorite, is performed by actors from the Little Victory Theater this season.

“In this version, the actors will bring the story to life as they ‘broadcast’ from a 1947 radio station,” says Alberta Thompson, founder of the theater.

The story takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day in New York City and centers on the effect of a Santa Claus department store pretending to be the real thing. It is set in a pre-TV and Internet era and the talented actors make the show as lively and as interesting as possible for those who “listen at home”.

To help accomplish this feat, a Foley artist will be on hand to handle the sound effects – using a process similar to creating movie sound effects for noises like footsteps, raindrops, and doorways. open and close – as well as a music director to direct the actors through show tunes and jingles.

The show will be performed by Charlotte Albunio, Jenn Gellman, Matt Gilleece, Ed Levey, Tamara Lecner, Lexi Paolino, Michael Schiavo and Alivia Schifter.
