Three local theatre groups are collaborating! Ohio University Lancaster Theatre, The Lancaster Playhouse, and Garret Players are joining forces to produce It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play adapted by Joe Landry to be performed December 1, 2, and 3 at Ohio University Lancaster's Wagner Theatre.
Audition Location: Wagner Theatre at Ohio University Lancaster - 1570 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130
Details: Auditions will include cold readings from the script. Scripts can be reviewed at the Ohio University Lancaster Library and at the main branch of the Fairfield County District Library. There is some music in the show. If interested in a singing role, come prepared to sing your favorite commercial jingle. If you are not a singer, don't worry. There are plenty of non-singing roles available. Community members of all ages, including children over the age of 7, are invited to audition. Like a traditional radio play, It’s A Wonderful Life can be performed with script in hand.
Times: Plan on arriving at 6:30PM on Friday, August 19th or at 11:30AM on Saturday, August 20th. If you must leave early or arrive late, please let us know.
Questions/Concerns: If you have questions or the date and time of auditions can't work for you, please email the production team at [email protected] or call and leave us a message at 740-407-2784.
Rehearsals/ Thanksgiving Holiday Availability: Rehearsals will be held nightly at 6:30PM at the Wagner Theatre beginning November 10th through November 30th, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and the day after. If cast, please plan your Thanksgiving holiday accordingly.
Current COVID Protocols (8/4/22)
For the safety of our cast and crew, during rehearsals and the run of the show, we ask the following: Actors must show proof of vaccination at the time rehearsals begin in November. Cast members will need to complete the vaccination process two weeks prior to rehearsals. Cast and crew may be required to complete weekly testing two weeks prior to performances. Currently, masks are strongly encouraged, but not required on the OHIO University Lancaster campus. When updates are made by OHIO University this information will be passed along to the cast and crew. At this time, actors with a negative COVID test will not be wearing masks during performances. Production team members will help all cast members follow OHIO University Lancaster protocols.
A cast meet and greet and script distribution will be held ASAP once the show is cast.
Performance Dates: 7:00PM on December 1, 2, and 3 and 2:00PM on December 3.
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com).
