Center Player, Freehold’s award winning residential theater company, is currently presenting a wonderful holiday production of “Miracle on 34th Street”. The theater is transformed into a 1940’s radio studio complete with an extensive display of antique radios on loan from Sal Brisindi, board member of the New Jersey Antique Radio Club.
During a rehearsal, Payton Lamp, (age 9) youngest member of the cast, looked up at the amazing radio exhibit and asked her mother, “What are these, Mommy?” In her young years filled with TVs, computers, mp3 players and smart phones, she had never seen a traditional radio! Her mother answered, “They’re radios, Honey”, and Payton said, “What’s a radio?” Both cast and crew laughed at how quickly everyday items can become obsolete in the fast moving world of communications and media.
Seating is limited and tickets are available for you to enjoy this nostalgic snapshot of mid-twentieth century entertainment. The production will warm the hearts of the whole family.
Center Playhouse is located at 35 South Street Freehold NJ. The remaining performances are this Thursday (12/13) at 700 PM, Friday (12/14) & Saturday (12/15) at 8:00 PM and Sunday (12/16) at 2:00 PM. Tickets for this special holiday offering are $23 for Seniors & Students and $25 for Adults and include our special gourmet desserts and holiday refreshments.
