POP UP THEATER – performances in unexpected places -- continues in Union’s Downtown Center when The Theater Project presents its annual holiday production IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: The Radio Play at Unity Bank. The Theater Project will recreate the Lux Radio Theater circa 1947 as twelve 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 1:45pm.
The show will be performed in the bank’s Stuyvesant Avenue branch, with the support of Union’s Downtown Improvement District, the Chamber of Commerce, and a Union County HEART grant.
“This story about the value of friendship and the importance of small acts of kindness seems to become more and more popular every year,” says Mark Spina, Artistic Director of The Theater Project. “For many of our patrons, kicking off their holidays with this show has become an annual ritual. We’re hoping to meet some new people from Union and at the same time, introduce our “regulars” to the great shops and restaurants in the downtown shopping district.” The Theater Project has added a directory of Union Center eateries to its web site.
Tickets are $15. Kids 10 & under are Free. Students $10 Tickets and further information are available at TheTheaterProject.org.
