Ada —

Chickasaw Nation Division of Arts and Humanities and the McSwain Theatre will conduct auditions for It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play Saturday, Sept. 9, 10, 23 and 24.

Scheduled auditions will take place from 10 a.m.  until 2 p.m., and 3-5 p.m., and open auditions from 5-7 p.m., at the McSwain Theatre, 130 W. Main, Ada.

Production dates will be the second week of December at the McSwain Theatre.

During the auditions, actors, ages 8 and older, will read from a provided script and may play more than one role. The director will be listening for distinctive voices, and actors may be asked to provide live sound effects for the production.

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry harkens back to the golden age of radio. Performed as a live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience, an ensemble of actors tell the story of George Bailey and the night he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve in 1946.

Presented by the Chickasaw Nation Division of Arts and Humanities and the McSwain Theatre, the performance is produced in special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
