Get In On the Life

It’s a Wonderful Life

Presented by ACT in partnership with the Confederation Centre of the Arts

and at the Watermark Theatre

December 2020

It has been a difficult year for the performing arts, and so ACT is delighted to present live theatre in December, bringing It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry to the stage, in partnership with Confederation Centre of the Arts. This is the heartwarming tale of George Bailey, a typical American dreamer, who contemplates ending his life one Christmas Eve. With the help of his guardian angel, he discovers the true value of friendship and family. The play is set on a 1940’s radio stage, complete with local advertising jingles and live sound effects. 

“We are so excited to be partnering with ACT for this production on the Mainstage this holiday season,” offers Adam Brazier, artistic director of the Confederation Centre of the Arts. “One of our strategic priorities is to support local theatre initiatives and this has become more vital than ever during these challenging times for our community and the arts industry. It’s a Wonderful Life is an uplifting story of family, love, hope, and redemption–a perfect message for 2020 and the Island holiday season.”

ACT celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2020, and president Marti Hopson was determined to stage a production that could fit within public health guidelines after seeing the rest of the season cancelled due to the pandemic. “It’s terrific that we can take this show to multiple locations and I think the audience will enjoy seeing this classic in a new way, with 6 actors playing multiple parts,” she said, “Confederation Centre of the Arts, the Watermark Theatre and several sponsors have been very generous in helping us to make this a reality.” The cast includes Alex Arsenault, Jenna Marie Holmes, Amanda Rae Gallant, Mike Mallaley, Keir Malone, and Rob Thomson, joined by Mitchell Gallant on sound effects. 

The show opens December 3, 4, 5 at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, and continues on December 10, 11, 12 at the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico. Tickets are available at www.confederationcentre.com and www.ticketwizard.ca . This show is suitable for all ages and is sure to bring holiday cheer. The performances will all have COVID-19 protocols in place, with physically distanced limited seating. Title sponsor of the event is the Smith Team of RBC Dominion Securities.adam
