Harbor Lights Theater Company to Present IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY, 12/6-22
The Harbor Lights Theater Company, led by Executive Artistic Director Tamara Jenkins and Associate Artistic Director Jay Montgomery, is presenting It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, by Joe Landry, for the holiday season.
"It's a perfect fit," says Ms. Jenkins. "The iconic story of George Bailey, Clarence the angel and Bedford Falls is magical, and for generations has captured the holiday spirit in us all."
"In our fourth season, Harbor Lights has continued to fulfill its mission of 'illuminating the human experience,' by producing shows with an empowering message, that demonstrate every human being's power to challenge and overcome all obstacles. Our most recent production, Oliver!, did this brilliantly and so will It's A Wonderful Life," continues Ms. Jenkins.
It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, is performed as a 1940's live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience. Five actors perform the dozens of characters in the radio play; the production also features a "Foley Artist" -- an actor creating all the sound effects live onstage.
Director Stephen Nachamie (Foreverman in the NYMTF, Luck at The York with Faith Prince) returns to Harbor Lights after directing the hilarious I Hate Hamlet in 2010. Harbor Lights is thrilled to introduce up and coming set designer Tabitha Pease with this production.
