Miracle on 34th Street

Celebrating the season of giving, Miracle on 34th Street weaves the classic tale of Kris Kringle, a lovable Macy’s Department Store Santa who strikes up controversy when he claims he's the real deal. Dressed in his velvet suit, the do-gooding fellow remains persistent in his story, eventually nestling himself snugly into the hearts of shoppers and the rest of New York City. Based on a short story by Val Davies, this holiday tale became wildly popular when transformed into a now-classic film in 1947.

Today, Miracle on 34th Street finds itself transformed again. From silver screen to stage, the Rhode Island Stage Ensemble's rendition carries not only the film's plot, but also its lack of color. The troupe dons costumes and makeup that erase their natural hues, and perform on a set rendered only in shades of gray. The result resembles a black-and-white mix between 3-D movie and theater that packs the warm charm of Christmas and the easy identity fraud of the 1940s.

Rhode Island Stage Ensemble

Artistic freedom and creative collaboration are the cornerstones of the Rhode Island Stage Ensemble. The young non-profit grew out of the pooled talents of performers, fundraisers, marketers, and designers who were all fluent in theatre, yet wary of professional theatre's limitations. So the group carved their own path, staging everything from edgy interpretations of Shakespeare to seldom-seen plays by the likes of Wilder, inviting the community to partake along the way. Locals can get involved another way, too: through the Stage Ensemble's Young Director Series, an annual program that pairs fledgling visionaries ages 17–23 with professional mentors to create productions for audiences other than stuffed animals.
