Based on the 1948 Lux Radio broadcast, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, the Holiday classic comes to the OTC stage! A man calling himself Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade and proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.

OTC’s 2017/18 Season continues:
Outside Mullingar, by John Patrick Shanley (a co-production with Scripps Ranch Theatre)
Directed by Kathy Brombacher – Featuring: Jim Chovick, Vanessa Dinning, Dagmar Fields & Steve Schmidt
Feb 23 – Mar 11, 2018 Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that – due to his painful shyness – suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him yet watching the years slip away.
The Pirates of Penzance Directed by Ted Leib
May 4 – 20, 2018… A new twist on the classic Gilbert & Sullivan operetta. Set in 1962, these Pirates are a waterfront street gang in leather jackets led by a Pirate King of Swing;, the Major General is a MacArthur-esque figure complete with corncob pipe and deep southern drawl; and the music is updated to a mix of contemporary styles of the era – Rock ‘n’ Roll, pop, big band swing, bluegrass, & more.
