Frank Capra’s perennial classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” returns to the stage as an old fashioned, 1940s era, radio broadcast with live sound effects, this holiday season when Seneca Community Players again presents “Merry Christmas, George Bailey.”
The show will be presented at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls on Dec. 10 and 11. Curtain time is 8 p.m. both nights.
The cast includes RJ Rapoza (Announcer, Bert), Peter Saracino (Clarence), Walter Wolf (Joseph, Peter Bailey, Bridge Keeper), Paul Wenderlich (Mr. Gower, Uncle Billy, Mr. Martini), Jeb Albro (George Bailey), Patrick Fegley (Harry Bailey, Sam Wainright), Liz Thurston (Mary Hatch/Bailey), Stephen Beals (Mr. Potter), Fran Acker (Tilly), Lynn Patti (Eunice), Debbie Roper (Mrs. Bailey), Matt Vitticore (Ernie, Mr. Welch), Jessica McBroom (Janie) and Ashley McBroom (ZuZu).
Produced by Christine Moulton, Merry Christmas, George Bailey is directed by SCP President Aaron Issacs in tribute to longtime MCGB director and friend Jim MacNeal, who unexpectedly passed away shortly after the final performance of last year’s production.
The sound design is by Ralph Sinicropi, sound effects are by Jeff Winston and the sound operator is Ellie Albro. Kevin Schoonover handled publicity.
