There’s holiday fun the whole family can enjoy in December when The Arts Center of Cannon County presents the timeless holiday classic, It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, based on the Frank Capra film and adapted for the stage by Joe Landry.
It’s December 24, 1946 in Studio A at WCYG Radio and a cast of actors are preparing to present It’s a Wonderful Life live to their listening audience. With the help of a pianist and a sound effects artist, the ensemble recreates the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, George contemplates throwing his life away when he is visited by Clarence, a guardian angel, who shows George what the world would be like had he never been born.
Directed by Donald Fann, the cast features Joe Bosnak as George Bailey and incluces Laurie Adams, Meredith Lane Toporzysek, Jonathan Higdon, Erin Higdon, and Nancy Stewart.
“Holiday dinner theatre shows have become annual events for many area businesses and organizations,” states Donald Fann, executive director of the Arts Center. “The number of available dates is limited and they run out quickly so we urge our patrons to make reservations early for good selection of dates and tables.” Performance dates are Dec. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, & 19. Tickets are $25 per person and include dinner, drink, dessert and the show. It’s a Wonderful Life: a Live Radio Play is sponsored by Smith Funeral Home.
