Eleventh annual benefit dynamic radio-play on stage to be held at
Center Stage, Biloxi, December 7th & 8th, 2019
Following ten years' success in New Orleans, The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation is bringing its production of "It's a Wonderful Life" to The Center Stage in Biloxi, MS.
Produced as a dynamic radio-play on stage, the production has wowed Holiday audiences in New Orleans for the past ten years - directed and produced by Stephen James, a Biloxi resident and Founder and CEO of the non-profit NOLA Voice Talent Foundation.
This will be the third production James will have presented in Mississippi by NOLA Voice Talent Gulf Coast, with two previous radio-play productions of The Whistler in Biloxi and Ocean Springs being a resounding success.
"It's a Wonderful Life" is based on the popular classic Christmas movie of the same name and adapted as a radio-play by New Orleans performer Vatican Lokey, a former member of NOLA Voice Talent.
This year's production at Center Stage Biloxi (December 7th & 8th) will be a Holiday extravaganza, with classic cars lined up outside the theater and Holiday delicacies served in the foyer. WLOX-TV newscaster Mike Lacy will narrate the production, while established Saucier actress Alyssa Diamond plays the leading lady Mary Hatch Bailey, the tolerant wife of the wayward George Bailey (Josh Boney). Saving George from his attempt to jump off the bridge at Bedford Falls is Clarence, played as an oafish Cockney by Biloxi's own British voice-actor and coach Stephen James, while the evil Henry Potter is played by international wrestling announcer and actor Paul Eubanks (Claws, Tell me Your Secrets, The Purge, NCIS:New Orleans).
