It’s A Wonderful Life (Live Radio Version)
by Philip Van Voren

December 6 at 7:30PM
December 8 at 2:00PM
December 13 & 14 at 7:30PM
December 15 at 2:00PM

The Carriage House Players holiday production is the live radio version of the beloved It’s a Wonderful Life, directed by Peg Merrill. Author Joe Landry has taken the Frank Capra classic and adapted it – in shorter form – for the stage. Conceived as a 1940s radio production, actors bring the charming characters George and Mary Bailey, played by Aaron Randolph and Sarah Hill, as well as the quirky and delightful inhabitants of Bedford Falls, to life. Margo Davis, Betsy Ross Visciano, Jason Mussachio, and Les Bailey (Yes, a REAL Bailey!) play multiple memorable roles in this show. Even the sound effects are authentic – done onstage during the radio broadcast. This holiday play is appropriate for all ages. Bring the family and celebrate the Christmas season at the Taylor Theater’s It’s a Wonderful Life. Click here for more information and tickets.

April 19 at 2:00PM
April 24 & 25 at 7:30PM

The Dining Room is centered on the dining room table that could have been in any typical middle-class American household, where the family gathers for their meals and holiday celebrations. The six actors play a variety of roles in a multitude of scenes that could have taken place in so many families. The scenarios are sometimes comical, sometimes thoughtful, but always resonate with truth. Click here for more information and tickets.
