‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ coming to Louisburg College

Dec. 06, 2012 @ 10:31 PM


LOUISBURG — The North Carolina Stage Company and Immediate Theatre Project is coming to the Louisburg College campus Saturday, at 7:30 p.m., to stage a performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Doors will open at 7 p.m.
This 1940s “live broadcast” of Frank Capra’s film takes the audience back to the Golden Age of Radio. This new adaptation is set in the fictional studio of WVL Radio Theatre. Due to the blizzard, the professional voice actors are unable to make it to the studio, but a small band of employees manages to create the dozens of movie characters and scenes using their own voices and a sound effects table.
This event will take place in the Frances Boyette Dickson Auditorium in Louisburg College’s Seby B. Jones Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available by calling the Louisburg College Box Office at (919) 497-3300 or toll-free at 1-866-773-6354; or at the door on the day of show.
A buffet-style dinner will be served beforehand, starting at 5:45 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of the Jordan Student Center. The meal will cost $20 per person. To reserve a seat, call the box office.
A ceremonial Christmas tree lighting will take place before the start of the program in the main lobby at 6:45 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped Christmas present to place under the tree. These will be donated to local needy children through the Franklin County Department of Social Services. Free refreshments will be served at intermission.
