Lamplighter's It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play at Smyrna Assembly 

Hee Haw and Merry Christmas

Hee Haw and Merry Christmas
Just two Christmases ago, Tennessee Repertory Theatre mounted the first local production of this show, an adaptation by Joe Landry of Frank Capra’s cinema classic staged as a live radio drama complete with sound effects and music. It’s an affectionate piece, ably conveying the bittersweet messages found in George Bailey’s personal and business travails while celebrating the colorful ambience and clever production tricks of an old-time radio studio. Lamplighter’s Theatre’s new version is under the direction of Margaret Meek and features a cast of five, with Michael Frazier providing piano accompaniment.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 4. Continues through Dec. 13, 2009
