NOTICE: this show was canceled and will not be performed.
Tibbits Professional Theatre will team with Branch County Community Theatre for a December production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play”. This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. The feel-good story of George Bailey and his discovery that "no man is a failure who has friends," includes the full radio-show experience with live sound effects, old-time radio ads and carols interspersed through the story. Joe Landry creates a charming adaptation of the popular Frank Capra Film based on “The Greatest Gift” by Philip Van Doren Stern.
Auditions for the community will be Sept 11 and 12 at Tibbits Opera House at 6:30 p.m. each evening.
Auditions will be for singers/ensemble members to round out the professional cast. Auditions are open to any adult or student over the age of 16. Auditionees need only attend one time.
In keeping with the era of this holiday show, those wishing to audition should prepare 32 bars of a 1940s or 1950s Christmas pop-standard such as "White Christmas" or "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," a standard Christmas carol, or simply a 1940s-type song such as Gershwin or Cole Porter. An accompanist may not be provided at auditions, in which case those auditioning may either sing a Capella or bring their own recorded accompaniment.
Rehearsals will be at regularly scheduled times weeknights through November and December (with some possible initial rehearsals beginning in late October). Performers who accept a role are expected to attend all rehearsals unless conflicts are approved at the time of the audition. Shows will take place Dec 9-10, 16-17 at 7:30pm with 2pm matinees Dec 11, 15, and 17.
Auditions will be held at Tibbits Opera House, 14 South Hanchett Street, Coldwater, Mich. For more information call 517.278.6029 or visit Tibbits.org.
