Photo Flash: First Look at Kentwood Players IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY
Kentwood Players presents the beloved American holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" by Joe Landry from Friday, November 8 through Saturday, December 14, 2013 for a six-week run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm with Sunday matinees at 2:00pm at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue, Westchester, CA 90045. The production is directed by Gypsy Foster and produced by Vada Foster and Alison Mattiza by special arrangement with Playscripts Inc.
This beloved American holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940's radio broadcast, set on the stage and auditorium of Studio A at WBFR in Manhattan, New York on Christmas Eve, 1946. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. Luckily the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody, shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. The production is appropriate for all age groups, so bring the entire family and enjoy this heart-warming holiday story together.
Featured in the cast are Samantha Barrios, Patricia Butler, Terry Delegeane, Vada Foster, Ben Lupejkis, Lori Marple-Pereslete, Colleen Okida, Roy Okida, Dave Parke, Darryl Maximilian Robinson and Jim Witoszynski.
