The Milledgeville Players are getting ready for their first joint venture with the GMC Fine Arts Program.
The play is “It’s a Wonderful Life: a Live Radio Play”. This is a really clever, funny and touching play with a wonderful, large, ensemble cast .
The story deals with a live radio broadcast of the story folks know from the motion picture, “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Actors and actresses re-create the characters from the movie “live and on stage” as if performing it for an old time radio show, circa late1940's. And many of these radio personalities have their own backgrounds, stories, and past interactions that they bring to the stage.
The Goldstein Center on the Georgia Military College campus will be transformed into a replica of one of the great old radio network stations. And those stations, of course, would include an elaborate set up of instruments, devices, bells and whistles to create the many needed sound effects.
The performance dates of the play will be Friday, December 8 - Sunday, December 10. Talk about a perfect way to get into the holiday mood!
Friday and Saturday shows will start at 7 PM. The Sunday matinee will begin at 2 PM.
General admission is $10. GMC students get in free with a current student ID. Non-GMC student tickets are $5 with a current student ID.
You can reserve tickets now by clicking the link below the logo. You do need to reserve for a particular date and, if you reserve student tickets, you will need to have your ID to present at the door.
Come on out and be transported to another era when radio was king and allow yourself to believe, at least for a few minutes, that every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.
