Curtain Call will be presenting it’s Christmas production of Christmas on the Radio: It’s a Wonderful Life beginning Thursday, December 8th. Performances will run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7 pm with a Sunday matinee on December 11th at 2 pm. All performances will take place at Christ’s Family Church at 531 N. Baltimore.
The production the takes the story from Frank Capra’s classic 1947 film and presents it as an old-time radio drama, complete with improvised sound effects, commercials and vintage music. The adaptation by Liz Zazzi has all the hallmarks fans of the film have come to love: the trials and tribulations faced by small-town banker George Bailey as he lives his daily life, feeling almost insignificant in comparison to events happening around him. It takes a strange twist of fate and some divine intervention to make him see how much he truly has meant to his friends and family.
This adaptation brings new enjoyment to fans of the film and an exciting new experience for those who may not be familiar with the story.
