LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Apple Tree Productions will present "It’s A Wonderful Life: The 1946 Radio Play" on Saturday, Dec. 6, at 2 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church in South Salem.
Set in a radio studio in the '40s, the actors will perform a live “on air” retelling of Frank Capra’s beloved holiday classic, portraying all of the movie’s favorite characters plus an overworked sound-effects artist. Kids (and kids at heart) will love getting to applaud and make special sound effects throughout the performance.
St. John’s Episcopal Church is 82 Spring St. in South Salem.
This radio play adaptation by Connecticut playwright Joe Landry was originally mounted at Stamford Center for the Arts in 1996 and has gone on to be produced around the country to critical acclaim, including a noted Chicago premiere at the American Theater Company.
Apple Tree Productions is a local theater company that has been presenting “children’s theatre for grown-ups, too,” in Westchester, Putnam and beyond, since 1993.
Directed by Judy Allen, the cast will include Chris Blossy, Elizabeth Breslin, Greg Brown, Nancy Maloy, Joe Niola, Simon Skolnik and Lew Zwick. Piano accompaniment will be provided by John Goodman.
Suggested donation for the performance of "It’s a Wonderful Life: The 1946 Radio Play" is $10 for adults and $5 for children. For more information, call St. John’s Church at 914-763-8273 or Joe Niola at 914-763-8461.
