"It's A Wonderful Life" at the Quick

George, Mr. Potter, hapless Uncle Willy, little Zuzu… they'll all come to glorious life on the Quick Center stage on December 12, as part of a creative re-imagining of the beloved Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life as a radio “broadcast.” This one-night-only performance, It’s a Wonderful Life: Live from WVL Radio Theatre, will take place at 8 p.m. in the Kelley Theatre. Tickets are $35, $30 and $25, $5 for Fairfield students.

This new version sets the story in a radio station preparing a broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life to keep the station afloat. It’s Christmas Eve 1945, but a blizzard hits and only a handful of WVL Radio's actors have braved the storm and reached the station. Undaunted, they soldier on, playing all the roles – from Bedford Falls everyman George Bailey to saucy Violet to Clarence the wingless angel  – in alternately hilarious and poignant fashion.

This live 1940s-style “broadcast” whisks the audience away to the Golden Age of Radio, complete with flashing “on air” sign and live sound effects. It’s an evening filled with hope and optimism that’s the perfect antidote to holiday cynicism.

The Inn at Fairfield Beach is the corporate sponsor and Morris Media is the media sponsor for the performance.

For tickets, stop by the Quick Center Box Office or call 203-254-4010 or visit www.quickcenter.com.
