BATTLEFORD — This beloved American holiday classic “It’s A Wonderful Life” comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast direct from the stage of the Battlefords Community Players Little Theatre.

With the help of an ensemble made up of Fraser Glen, Glen Rubidge, Clint Barrett, Crystal Gilbert, Holly Briant and foley artist Marno Auchstaetter, who will bring a few dozen characters, a multitude of sounds and music to the stage and the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.

Serious but sensitive, laughter and tears, music and sound – everything you need for a joyous evening of entertainment under the direction of Darren Olson. This is the second show of the season for the club and certainly brings a different opportunity to the cast and all those enjoying this classic.

If you haven’t got your tickets yet, don’t wait any longer as half the eight performances are sold out, so give us a call 306-446-3133 or and join others enjoying live theatre at this special time of Year. What a great evening out for friends, co-workers or just a special date before the busy Christmas season is upon us.

It’s a wonderful time of the year and if you are looking for that special something for those very hard to purchase for, why not consider a couple of tickets to our upcoming productions? It could be the best thing you could do for a friend or co-worker to introduce them to live theatre.

Next up for the club is “An Inspector Calls” set in 1914 in an English industrial city, involving the death of a young girl. At the beginning of the evening, the closely knit family are shown to be selfish, self-centred or cowardly. Good humour turns to acid by the end. A multitude of turns during the evening keep the characters and audience on their toes. A great, popular play that will lead the actors and the audience through many twists and turns, you don’t want to miss this drama – the only one of our season. Tickets are available anytime and could be that special gift.

Director Jim Walls is leading this group and is still looking for people to get involved, as actors, backstage, costuming, makeup, hair and several other important elements of any theatre presentation. Call 306-446-3133 if you are interested in getting involved in this or any other aspect of our bringing a play from the page to the stage.

Battlefords Community Players are always looking for new people to be part of our theatre family. If you aren’t sure how you could be involved just remember the door is always open and we will provide you with the support you might need to enjoy the creation of live theatre in the Battlefords.

At this time, we would like to thank all our members, our audiences, our sponsors, our donors and all involved over the many years, who have helped to make it possible for BCP to produce live theatre in the Battlefords.

All the very best for a wonderful holiday season and a fabulous 2024.
