CF Brings 'It's a Wonderful Life' to Ocala, Lecanto
Nov. 14, 2011
The College of Central Florida Performing Arts Series will host “It’s a Wonderful Life: Live from WVL Radio Theatre.”
Performances will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. in the Curtis Peterson Auditorium, 3810 N. Educational Path, Lecanto; and Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 5 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. Tickets are $26.
This 1940’s “live radio broadcast” is a fresh new adaptation of the beloved film and holiday classic, set in the fictional studio of WVL Radio Theatre. When a blizzard keeps the professional actors from arriving in time, the station employees take the stage instead.
“This radio theater production is a lovely, funny and fresh take to the story everyone knows so well,” said Dr. Jennifer Fryns, CF director of Visual and Performing Arts. “I can think of no better time than the holidays to go to the theater with family and friends, to be entertained and reminded of the things that really matter in life. Buy tickets as a holiday gift, bring the grandkids and bundle up as the cast takes you through this wintery tale."
