Theatre 7 will perform “It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play,” at The Decatur Club on December 9th and 10th, 2016. We will bring the Golden Age of radio to life in this stage play adaptation of Frank Capra’s iconic holiday classic film. Performed as a “live” radio broadcast in front of a “studio audience” (you, the patrons), the play will take you back to Bedford Falls on Christmas Eve, 1946 – complete with 1940’s costuming and live sound effects, created on stage by a Foley artist. A group of 10 talented actors portray “radio stars,” using different voices to play the roles of 36 separate parts adapted directly from the dialog of the movie.
The play stars Evan Miller, Sarah Rice, John Dunn, Zachary Hammon, Maria Diaz, Anitra Hines, RuthAnn Holmes, Cynthia Hinkle, Zach Stewart and Craig Culp, with Terri Tate performing as the Foley artist, and is directed by Jan Hooten.
Join us on Friday, December 9th or Saturday, December 10th for an evening of elegant dining – Decatur Club style – great entertainment, and holiday inspiration.
