QNEK Productions to Present IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY, Begin. 12/12
QNEK Productions continues the celebration of it's 21st Season by presenting It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry, to benefit The MAC Center for the Arts in Newport and The First Universalist Parish of Derby Line. Over the course of a few holiday seasons, QNEK has developed a strong tradition of appetizing audience's hearts for this "most wonderful time of the year" with hilarious and thoughtful stage entertainment. This year's holiday production is as good as it gets, as QNEK takes on a radio play version of the beautiful and iconic story that has become a Christmas Eve television staple of families for generations. If you've never seen or heard it live - with sound effects! - you won't want to miss this chance.
Based on the famous 1946 film directed by Frank Capra, It's A Wonderful Life, Joe Landry's adaptation of this American holiday classic for all ages will transport audiences straight to Bedford Falls, NY, through a live 1940s radio broadcast, directed by Phil Gosselin, assistant directed by Jenny Dunne, and accompanied by Chris Sellers. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to life, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he discovers what the world would be like without him in it.
