The cast features Martin Gagen as Jake Laurents (voice of George Bailey), Clara Hirsh as Sally Applewhite (voice of Mary), Ryk Houseman as Freddie Filmore (voice of Clarence, among others), Katherine Leyva as Lana Sherwood (voice of Violet, among others) and Charles Woodson Parker as Harry (voice of Joseph, among others). Charles Morgan is the pianist.
Performances are slated 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. A discussion with the director and cast is scheduled after Saturday’s show.
Tickets are $18-$32.
