ACT (a community theatre) plans to bring It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play to the stage this December.

In Joe Landry’s adaptation of the well-known holiday classic, actors will present the story as though it is taking place on a sound stage at a 1940’s radio station—complete with live sound effects created by a foley artist.

Auditions were held in late September and rehearsals are underway. The handful of actors will have to play over two dozen characters by changing voices and mannerisms.

Performances are scheduled for December 3, 4 and 5 at the Fox and Crow, UPEI, Charlottetown, and December 10, 11 and 12 at the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico.

Only a limited number of tickets will be available. Some of the performances will be admission by donation with proceeds going to local charities.

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is family friendly and will appeal to all ages. Other dates and venues may be added. Visit actpei.com or follow ACTPEI on Facebook for updates.
