‘Merry Christmas, George Bailey!’ at Heartwood
“It’s A Wonderful Life” returns to Heartwood just in time to launch the holiday season (and before things get too hectic)! Heartwood Theater presents the second annual staged radio theater style performance of “Merry Christmas, George Bailey!” on Dec. 1 and 2. This beloved heartwarming story is perfect for family audiences, with student ticket prices kept to a low $5, thanks to student ticket sponsors First Advisors and Colby & Gale.
Back at Heartwood by popular demand for a second season, the original 1940’s Lux Radio Theater Show, adapted from Frank Capra’s movie “It’s a Wonderful Life!” will be performed as a ramped up staged reading in the intimate Poe Theater at Lincoln Academy. A festive set design, live sound effects, music and great humor make this well-loved holiday story a treat for the entire family.
With musical commercial breaks for show sponsors and a nod to our Midcoast area, radio-audience signs for applause and laughter, and delicious pre-show treats, “Merry Christmas, George Bailey!” has all the makings of a delightful, feel-good evening. A lovely way to kick off the holiday season.
The cast: Mary Boothby, Sonny Cumming, Jonah Daiute, Eliana Floge, Nanette Fraser, May Halm, Ryan Kohnert, Kayleigh Tolley, Heidi Kopishke, Jason Laptewicz, Joe Lugosch, Mickey McAtee, Stephen Wallace, Mitchell Wellman, Emma Tolley, Mike Rowe, Nick Miaoulis, Joe McGrann, Katherine Tolley, Elise Voigt and Dan Perry.
