MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Theater Project will present its holiday production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: The Radio Play” this Saturday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m. at the Burgdorff Center, 10 Durand Road.
The Theater Project’s company of local professional actors will recreate the Lux Radio Theater circa 1947 as 12 actors, a musician and one extremely overworked sound technician prepare for the big radio broadcast of the story made famous in the Frank Capra film of the same name. A pre-show sing-along begins at 1:45 p.m. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will also be provided.
“Every year, some of our favorite actors come together and donate their time to create this event as a gift to our supportive community,” says Mark Spina, artistic director of The Theater Project. “It allows us say thank you, to our audiences and to each other, for celebrating theater together all year long. It’s our living holiday card.”
Tickets can be reserved by calling The Theater Project at (973) 763-4029. Children attend free, while tickets for adults are available for $20. If inclement winter weather forces a cancellation, the "snow date" will be Sunday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. Complete information is available at www.TheTheaterProject.org.
