When a Macy’s Department Store Santa Claus claims he is the real Kris Kringle, he winds up being put in an institute for the mentally insane. But with a little help from a lawyer friend of his, and a little girl’s belief in the Christmas spirit, Kris is able to make a miracle happen right there in New York City. This Christmas tale is a beloved family classic that will melt even the most cynical of hearts.

Safety is Our First Concern

Staged radio plays are performed straight out, into microphones, and do not regularly involve actors conversing face-to-face with each other. All shows will be produced with in-person rehearsals using appropriate PPE. All shows will be performed with an adherence to social distancing of actors (a minimum of 6’ away from each other) and remote audiences. Actors will not share microphones, costumes, or props during a taping session. Performances will be filmed in a closed studio environment without live audiences.
