The Frank Venables Theatre will be transformed into a radio broadcast studio as this beloved holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio play.
With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds. He considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve when his guardian angel, Clarence, shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn't been for all his good deeds over the years.
In interesting and fun part of this production will be having the Foley Artist, or sound effects technician, live on stage, creating necessary sounds using props, rather than relying on recordings played from the sound booth.
