Rover and AmeriStage present the beloved American holiday classic as it comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, along with live sound effects, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.
The cast includes Andrew Kasten as George Bailey and Nikki Cloer as Mary, with Brian Bentley, Jennifer Duggins, and Jason Rice playing all of the other roles. Jeff Fenter serves as director as well as providing all the live sound effects, with Janet Behning on piano, bringing Scott A. Eckert's custom compositions to life. Darcy Koss serves as stage manager, with Lindsey Humphries providing the 1940s costume design.
Tickets for It's a Wonderful Life are $22.00 Friday and Saturday nights and the Christmas Eve show, and $16.00 for the Saturday and Sunday matinees. Thursday, December 10 is preview, with all seats $10.00 in advance online or "pay-what-you-can" at the door.
