The program will support both WQPT and WVIK
MOLINE, ILLINOIS – WQPT, Quad Cities PBS and WVIK, public radio are teaming up to present “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” by Joe Landry. The theatrical production, set in a radio station in 1946, will be presented at Potter Theatre on the campus of Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois on November 16 at 7:30 pm and November 17 at 2:00 and 7:30 pm. Eight actors bring more than 50 characters to life. The production will be taped for broadcast on both stations during the holiday season in December.
Tickets are $20 each and available by logging on to www.augustana.edu/tickets or calling 309-794-7306.
The cast includes Mike Millar as George Bailey, Jenny Winn as Mary, Erin Lounsberry as Violet and others, Jason Platt as Potter and others, Michael Carron as Clarence and others, Tamra McConoughey as Sadie and others, Scott Tunnicliff as the Announcer and others and Tom Vacarro as Harry and as the foley artist (sound effects). Jonathan Turner will provide piano accompaniment.
“We have wanted to expand our partnership with WVIK, who air our public affairs program "The Cities with Jim Mertens" and to create more local programming for both of our stations. With my theatre background it just seemed like a great idea to work with our public radio station to do a play that is set in a radio station in 1946. And the fact that we are performing in Potter Theatre at Augustana just seemed like a perfect venue considering this is “It’s a Wonderful Life,” said director Lora Adams, who is also the Director of Marketing and Local Content for WQPT. “Ticket sales will be split between both stations and WQPT will use our share to produce more local arts programming,” Adams said.
For more information you can go to www.wqpt.org/wonder.
Production funding and sponsorships come from the Illinois Arts Council, WQPT, a media service of Western Illinois University, WVIK, Augustana College and KWQC.
