Box Office opens Nov 27 for Wonderful Life

What better way to celebrate Christmas than travel back in time to the era of radio plays and small town values.  The cast of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is gearing up to send you back in time.  This play involves a radio performance much like what would have occurred before the age of television when families gathered round the radio to hear their favorite stories told by actors performing live in a studio.  Audiences will watch the production of a live radio play and hear the beloved story of George Bailey while being transported back in time.

The box office opens to the public on Monday, November 27.  (Subscribers, check your coupons for your special box office dates).  Tickets are $13.  Call the box office from 2 – 6 pm Monday – Saturday to reserve a seat.  Our friendly volunteers are waiting to take your call at 419-238-9689.  If you get the voicemail, please leave a message, and someone will call you right back.

Director Danielle Slagle has assembled this cast.  We hope to see you there.
