The Cold War and space race paranoia threaten the good folks at the fictional Milwaukee Space Center when a flying saucer lands in the city. Taking its cue from pulp movies popular at the time, this musical comedy brings the 1950s nostalgically and hilariously to life.

Recommended for ages 13 and above.

'Wonderful' Script Review September 4

Curtain Players on Friday September 4 is offering the script review session in advance of Sunday September 13 auditions for its December production of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.

The Curtain Players staging is Joe Landry’s adaptation of the Frances Goodrich-Albert Hackett-Frank Capra-Jo Swerling screenplay of the beloved holiday motion picture classic. Wonderful Life tells the story of idealistic George Bailey as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve but, in Landry’s script, as a live 1940s radio broadcast.

The September 4 script review session begins at 6:30 PM at the playhouse, 5691 Harlem Road, Galena. The event is an opportunity for actors to read and to review the script, to discuss the play with the director, and to ask questions about the audition process, rehearsal period, and production. Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend to learn more about the project.

Mark Passerrello directs Wonderful Life. This is his first directing assignment with Curtain Players. He has acting credits with such central Ohio companies as Actor’s Theatre, SRO, and Available Light.

There is only one night of auditions, Sunday September 13 at the playhouse. Registration is at 6:30 PM with tryouts to start at 7 o’clock.

If an actor is unable to participate in that audition, he may request an alternate audition time. Requests must be filed before Sunday August 29. Write production@curtainplayers.org Alternate auditions are scheduled at the discretion of the director. Questions about the production, too, may be directed to that e-mail address.

Performances are December 4-5, 11-13, and 18-20.

Scripts are available for loan from the Westerville Public Library.
