Director Kenney Workman re- cently cast the show, and he said that he is delighted with the group of actors that will appear in "Mir- acle on 34th Street." "We have people who will be familiar to our audiences and some new actors who are going to add so much to this production," he said. "I loved all the children who auditioned, so we are going to write all of them in, one way or another. The adults are all experi- enced and talented. "I am excited about the show." The show follows the movie plot of a little girl's search for the stability and love of a family home. Her chance meeting with a kindly gentleman who knows ex- actly who the real Kris Kringle is opens her eyes to the wonders of hope and faith.
