This was an outstanding show, loved every minute of it! – patron
Local performers bring the classic story of It’s A Wonderful Life, adapted by Joe Landry, to the stage in 1940s-style radio hour as it is broadcast live on KOHO 101. From the announcer’s authoritative, contained enthusiasm to live sponsor spots and jingles, to the use of period microphones, to the sounds effects crew right there with the actors – the result is a nostalgic evening of entertainment from yesteryear. Actors juggle different parts, throwing their voices and racing to different microphones on the stage to re-create Philip Van Doren Stern’s memorable characters in the imaginations of the viewing and listening audience.
After George Bailey wishes he had never been born, an angel is sent to earth to make George’s wish come true. George starts to realize how many lives he has changed and impacted, and how they would be different if he was never there.
Experience both performances! The public is invited to be part of the live studio audience at the Numerica Performing Arts Center on December 21 at 7:30pm. Then, KOHO 101 will rebroadcast the show on Christmas Eve at 7:30pm. Must be 5 years or older to be part of the live studio audience.
