Dec 8-23:       It's a Wonderful Life - A Live Radio Play

It's a Wonderful Life has become a holiday staple for many families, and there's no better way to kick off the season than to see the old favorite in a whole new way -- live on stage. This show-within-a-show takes place on December 24, 1946 in Studio A at WSTG Radio, where a cast of actors is preparing to present It's a Wonderful Life live to the listening audience. The ensemble re-enacts the beloved story of George Bailey, a young man who has given up on his dreams and stands on a bridge on Christmas Eve, ready to end it all. A guardian angel intervenes and shows him all the lives he's touched throughout the years without even realizing it.

$15. ACT member discounts apply if you buy in advance using our online system.

 Dec 8-24:      The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, by Barbara Robinson, is a heartwarming and humorous tale of a town that has its annual Christmas nativity reenactment shaken up when the rowdy Herdman clan high-jacks the play. The narrator introduces the Herdmans as the worst kids in the history of the world and goes on to detail their crimes. They smoke, curse, bully kids at school, steal, and even set fire to an old abandoned toolhouse. The product of an absent father and a mother who would rather work two jobs than parent her children, the six Herdmans take care of themselves.

TAMS-WITMARK MUSIC LIBRARY, INC.

Jan 5 - Jan 21:  CABARET - Celebrating its 50th Anniversary!

 

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.” 

MATURE audiences only - 18 yrs+

 $15. ACT member discounts apply if you buy in advance using our online system.
