Provincetown Theater Holds Open Auditions

for It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play


Artistic director David Drake seeks 7 diverse actors

for Joe Landry’s unique adaptation of the holiday classic


       On September 8 & 9 the Provincetown Theater will hold open auditions for its 2019 winter production of Joe Landry’s unique adaptation of the classic Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Helmed by David Drake, the director is seeking seven non-union actors (4 males and 3 females) with the vocal dexterity and range to inhabit the voices of a multitude of characters. As written, the play is set as a live radio broadcast in the 1940s, and is performed with scripts in hand. Each actor in the show will “voice” 5-10 diverse characters – ranging from kids to cops, members of the George Bailey family, town folk of Bedford Falls, plus angels-in-the-making (Clarence) and devils-in-the-flesh (Mr. Potter).


Auditions will be held Sunday, September 8th from 3-6pm at WOMR Radio Station at 494 Commercial Street in Provincetown, MA. A second evening of auditions will be held Monday, September 9th from 7-10pm at the Provincetown Theater, 238 Bradford Street in Provincetown, MA. Sides will be available at the auditions.


Rehearsals for It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play will commence mid-October, evenings and weekends. Production opens November 21st and runs Thursday – Saturdays at 7pm, Sundays at 2pm thru December 8th. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving, November 28th.  A non-union production, actors will each receive a $300 honorarium for their participation in the production.
