The North Carolina Stage Company will present It’s a Wonderful Life: The Live Radio Play December 18 – 23, 2007 here in Asheville. In a well thought-out adaptation of the James Stewart classic film, It’s a Wonderful Life, playwright Joe Landry takes the film to another place, a 1940s radio station on Christmas Eve. The five characters in the production will play all of the movie characters and use old-fashioned sound effects. The play is a fresh look at the Christmas movie we all know and love.
The play is being directed by Hans Meyer, who will also act the role of Clarence the Angel in the show. Other stars include Lauren Fortuna as Mary Bailey, Willie Repoley as George Bailey, Joe Sturgeon in multiples roles including Uncle Billy and Mr. Potter, and Kathryn Temple as several characters including bad girl Violet Bick. This show sold out last year, so make sure to get your tickets early.
Showtimes are as follows:
December 18 – 23, 2007
Tuesday – Saturday at 7:30pm,
Early Shows – Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm
