"It's A Wonderful Life" Brings Radio Magic To The Stage
Beginning this weekend, First Presbyterian Theater is adding a new twist to a beloved holiday classic, with its production of "It's a Wonderful Life, a Live Radio Play."
Recreated as a 1940's radio drama in progress, the audience is transported to the air studio of a small town station that has been allowed to broadcast the story, just before Frank Capra's movie premiere.
The mood is complete, with live sound effects, commercial jingles, Christmas carols, and a core group of actors playing "a cast of hundreds."
For a sneak preview of the adventure, WBOI's Julia Meek met with director, Thom Hofrichter and lead actor, Kevin Torwelle to learn what this creative mixing of mediums holds in store.
