It's a Wonderful Life at Mattie Kelly
Northwest Florida State College is proud to present Joe Landry’s It’s a Wonderful Life: A Radio Play. Set in a glamorous radio production studio, performers are warming up and preparing to present the live radio show of the beloved Christmas story. This live dramatic and musical performance will take audiences back in time to the 1940’s, when radio shows brought families together for story time and good, old-fashioned fun. It’s a Wonderful Life unfolds with beautiful carols of the season sung by student vocal groups, Madrigal Singers and Belle Voci, and features performances by student actors. Dancers from the NWF State College Dance Ensemble complete this holiday spectacle. It’s a Wonderful Life recalls the story of George Bailey’s Christmas transformation. Audiences will fall in love all over again with George and Mary, and laugh as Clarence finally earns his wings. This holiday classic is bound to give wings to all who attend, and the spirit of joy will soar throughout the holidays.
It’s a Wonderful Life runs in the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Sprint Theater November 29 – December 1, with nightly performances at 7:30. A 2:00 matinee is scheduled for Saturday, December 1. Tickets are $25 and include an intermission reception in the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Galleries with holiday treats provided by The Eventful Planner. Tickets are on sale now at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Box Office.
