Radio Theatre Project, a partnership between WMNF Radio and the Studio at 620, will be presenting the holiday classic – It’s a Wonderful Life – during their holiday gala at the Palladium on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.
The company presents new plays and classic radio plays during their regular season at the Studio. The live shows are taped, edited and presented on WMNF’s Soundstage, which is also available on the web at www.wmnf.org
This hour-long version of It’s A Wonderful Life was originally done by the Lux Radio Theater in the heyday of radio drama.
Some of the bay area’s best actors will be on stage, dressed as 1940s radio actors. The sound effects are also done live during the show.
You’ll also see and hear the second installment of the new serial – The Continuing Adventures of Noel Berlin, Cabaret Detective. Each month, Noel works to solve a series of murders in St. Petersburg that seem to be related to strange lights emanating from the old St. Pete Pier.
The evening wraps up with a holiday sing-along around the piano. It all happens in the intimate Side Door Cabaret.
The show is a benefit for the Radio Theatre Project. Tickets are just $18 and are available through the Palladium box office. Showtime is 7 p.m.
