IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE - THE RADIO PLAY Plays The Theater Project, 12/1

November 10
12:37 PM 2012


The Theater Project will present its holiday production of "It's A Wonderful Life: The Radio Play" recreating the Lux Radio Theater circa 1947, where twelve actors, a musician and one extremely overworked sound technician prepare for the big broadcast of the story made famous in the Frank Capra film.

"This is our holiday card to our audience," says Theater Project artistic director Mark Spina. "Every year for the past ten years, some of our favorite actors donate their time to relive this story with our patrons and their families."

Adapted by New Jersey actress, director and playwright Liz Zazzi, "It's A Wonderful Life: The Radio Play," has become a holiday tradition at The Theater Project. This year's performance is at 3 PM, Saturday, December 1, 2012 -- a pre-show sing-along begins at 2:45 PM -- at the Burgdorff Center for Performing Arts, 10 Durand Road in Maplewood.

Children attend the 80 minute presentation free of charge, while tickets for adults are available for $20 (suggested donation). If inclement winter weather forces a cancellation, the 'snow date' will be Sunday, December 2 at 3pm. For reservations call The Theater Project at 973 763-4029 or visit the website,
