It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
Written by Joe Landry
Directed by Greg Cicchino
In It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play adapted by Joe Landry, the treasured holiday film comes to life before your eyes. 1940s radio players perform the story as a Christmas Eve broadcast with music and sound effects. A story of redemption that resonates with all ages, It’s A Wonderful Life has become our American “A Christmas Carol.” This production will be directed by VTG Managing Director Greg Cicchino and VTG Artistic Director Kirk Gostkowski will be playing George Bailey. Enjoy the timeless tale and give your whole family the gift of live theater!
December 5th- December 21st
The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe
Written by Jane Wagner
Starring Barbara Rosenblat
The Chain Theatre will be hosting a one night only staged reading benefit of The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe written by Jane Wagner and starring Barbara Rosenblat. Barbara may be best known for portraying Miss Rosa, the no nonsense bank robber and cancer patient on Orange Is the New Black, but she also has had an extremely illustrious career on the stage and as “the Meryl Streep of Audiobooks.” As a moving critique of modern society, this barbed but humane show continues to resonate with truth and accuracy today. Come see this poignant, sharp, and laugh-out-loud funny play.
Santa Claus: In Person!
We are also very honored to have Santa Claus, live and in person on Saturday December 6th at 12pm. He will be reading the Night Before Christmas and listening to your Christmas wishes. Pictures with Mr. Claus will be available.
This is a FREE EVENT
A Yippie-Ki-Yay Christmas!
Two drinks included in the ticket price $15
It’s HARD to imagine what would the holidays be like without the magic of ’80s Action Christmas movies. Not a world we want to live in that’s for sure; I think we would just DIE of boredom. Come celebrate the season with a staged reading parody of one of the greatest films ever made. There will be audience participation, trivia, a raffle, and drinking. Welcome to the party pal!
