About this Event
Grab a blanket and put on a pot of hot chocolate because Evangel University Theatre proudly presents It’s A Wonderful Life: A Radio Show by Joe Landry.
The production will be broadcast live over Periscope on Friday, Nov. 20th at 7:00 p.m.
Directed by senior theatre and speech education majors, Annalise Williams and Abbigail Vaughan, the show can also be found online on the campus radio channel at www.crusadermedia.com under the KECC tab.
“Listen at home with your computer or phone and feel as if you have stepped back in time to the Golden Age of Radio,” said Williams in an announcement that went campus wide.
“With authentic 1940s commercials, sound effects, and an ensemble that brings dozens of characters to life, we hope to bring you the joy and true spirit of Christmas over the radio this holiday season,” she said.
It’s A Wonderful Life: A Radio Show is a new type of production for Evangel’s Theatre program — an experiment brought on by the limitations of the Covid Pandemic.
The production also became a cross-department effort when the theatre students reached out to the broadcasting students.
“Campus radio advisor Austin Twigg led a team of students in the recording process. He engineered this for the theatre department,” said Dr. Cameron Pace, chair of the Department of Communication. “The Periscope channel is KECC’s channel which airs 24 hours a day.”
“So, get the whole family together around the fire and enjoy this classic Christmas story,” concluded Williams.
