It's a Wonderful Life - The Radio Play
Thursday, November 10, 2011 • 10:18am
The Theater Project will present its holiday production of New Jersey’s own Liz Zazzi’s “It’s A Wonderful Life: The Radio Play” for one performance only on Saturday, December 3. A pre-show singalong begins at 2:45pm. The performance will take place at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts, 10 Durand Road in Maplewood. For reservations call The Theater Project at 908-809-8865 or website www.TheTheaterProject.org.
Children attend free of charge, while tickets for adults are available for $15 (suggested donation). If inclement winter weather forces a cancellation, the ‘snow date’ will be Sunday, December 4 at 3pm. The Theater Project’s company of local professional actors will recreate the Lux Radio Theater circa 1947 as twelve actors, a musician and one extremely overworked sound technician prepare for the broadcast of the story made famous in the Frank Capra film of the same name. Information is available at www.thetheaterproject.org.
Adapted by New Jersey actress, director and playwright Liz Zazzi, “It’s A Wonderful Life: The Radio Play” serves as The Theater Project’s annual holiday gift to its loyal audiences. “Every year, some of our favorite actors come together and donate their time to create this event as our holiday gift to our supportive community,” says Mark Spina, Artistic Director of The Theater Project.
