“It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” will be on stage in Ingram this month and the next.
The play will run from Nov. 22 to Dec. 8 Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists.
“It’s a Wonderful Life” is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel, Clarence, to show George what life would be like if he hadn’t been born. George must have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
“It is a ‘play within a play’ because at the same time that the actors are running a live radio broadcast of the beloved American classic tale, performing as the radio employees, they perform as the 25-plus characters in the story also,” said director Laura Tomerlin. “It is all very exciting, and if you don’t know the story, come experience it this holiday season.”
The Hill Country Arts Foundation, founded in 1959, provides community theatre, performing arts workshops, musical concerts, art exhibitions and art classes.
