Event Description

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Ignition Theatre is pleased to present its annual holiday production of the beloved classic, "It's a Wonderful Life: The Live Radio Drama" - one of Central Alberta's most anticipated and innovative annual events! RED DEER MEMOIRAL CENTRE - MAINSTAGE DOORS: 7:00PM - CURTAIN: 7:30PM ALL TICKETS: $25.00 - AVAILABLE ONLINE: WWW.IGNITIONTHEATRE.CA Group Rates Available (8 or More). Contact Ignition Theatre by Email: (ignitiontheatre@ignitiontheatre.ca) It’s a Wonderful Life: The Live Radio Drama is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. 16 actors portray more than 50 characters in addition to a live musical score and live sound effects performed by a professional foley artist! It’s a Wonderful Life tells the story of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel named Clara to show him what life would have looked like had he never been born; and for George to learn that no man is a failure who has friends; and earning Clara her long awaited wings. And this season, we're thrilled to announce the addition of local improv and sketch comedy company, IMPROV JELLY, who will be performing all of the classic commercials synonymous with radio drama, LIVE ON STAGE! It's a Wonderful Life represents Ignition Theatre's sole annual fundraiser. Rather than solicit donations via online campaigns or silent auctions, we have instead gathered an ensemble of artists who have donated their time, so that we can offer you this exciting production at a fraction the cost of our regular seasonal programming. Furthermore, each season a local charity is selected to receive $1.00/ticket sold on behalf of both Ignition Theatre and Central Alberta Theatre, and this season we are proud to support the Stonewall Community Foundation.
