The Ozarks Technical Community College Fine Arts Department will present its annual holiday production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” at the Gillioz Theatre Friday, Nov. 11-12 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 2:30 p.m.
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is set in a 1940s radio studio theatre called WGLZ Playhouse of the Air. Seven actors deliver all the lines from the classic film and create their own live sound effects. The plot follows the heartwarming story of George Bailey, a man who ─ after a series of unfortunate circumstances ─ wishes he had never been born. His mindset shifts from despair to joy after a visit from Clarence, his 292-year-old guardian angel. Clarence helps reawaken George’s appreciation for life by showing George what his world and loved ones’ lives would be like without him.
General admission tickets cost $10 and will be available at the door. Admission is free to OTC students, faculty and staff who present a valid college ID. Guests are encouraged to dress in ‘40s attire for an immersive theatrical experience.
