TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Contra Costa Civic Theatre presents “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play”

Nov 01, 2019
Contra Costa Civic Theatre (CCCT) will present the stage production “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” adapted from Frank Capra’s beloved film by Joe Landry, for nine performances only, November 29 through December 15. This family-friendly holiday production is directed by David Bogdonoff with original music and live foley effects by Don Tieck,

The 5-person company of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” play more than 50 characters in Landry’s adaptation including Peter Marietta as George Bailey, Keith Jefferds as his guardian angel, Clarence, Kim Donovan as Zuzu, Merrill Grant as Mary, and Kendall Tieck as Mr. Potter, with live sound effects and original score created by Don Tieck. Although the Tieck brothers have appeared in or worked on Bay Area productions for nearly 40 years, this marks the first time they have appeared onstage together.

Called ‘one of the best holiday shows around’ by Chicago Sun-Times, “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” brings home the timeless message that no man is a failure who has friends. Now, you can become part of the live studio audience for a radio broadcast of this American holiday favorite. George Bailey’s Christmas Eve crisis of faith brings about the intervention of his guardian angel Clarence, who shows George all the lives he has touched, and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm. All performances take place at CCCT's intimate and fully accessible theatre in the Flynn building (located at 951 Pomona Avenue) in El Cerrito. CA. Free parking is available in the adjoining lot.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.ccct.org or by phone at (510) 524.9012.
