It’s A Wonderful Life December 10 & 11
December 10 and 11 at 7:00pm
The Black River Academy Players are in rehearsal for a presentation of the inspiring Christmas tale, “It’s A Wonderful Life”
Under the direction of Stephanie Rowe, the beloved tale will be brought to life on the Ludlow Town Hall stage as a 1940s style radio-on-stage production. Dressed in formal attire of the period, actors, behind microphones, will perform, reading from authentically formatted radio scripts to bring back the golden age of live radio shows.
Live sound effects of door knocks, bells ringing, and fights, will add to the fun while the themes in Frank Capra’s original production will remain intact.
Eight local actors are participating in the show. Tuckerman Wunderle, of Chester, takes on the role of George Bailey, the man who learns, after despair, that he really has had a wonderful life. Other actors (Tom Field, Don Gray, Irene Ramen of Springfield) take on multiple roles as do Maia Gilmore of Ludlow, April Lawrence of Charlestown, and Paul and Mary Faenza of Mt. Holly.
Set aside the evenings of December 10 and 11 at 7:00 PM to see this marvelous story brought to life.
