A LIVE RADIO PLAY

"It's A Wonderful Life based on the short story "The Greatest Gift" by Philip Van Doren Stern
Adapted by Joe Landry
Directed by Kerstin Vaughn
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are created by Foley artists. It’s a Wonderful Life tells the tale of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from Clarence, a lovable angel in training, to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand
the true spirit of the holidays.

An original play by Lubbock' s Own
Whitney Ryan Garrity
It's Christmas Eve, 1928 and flighty New York heiress, Eve Whitehall, is throwing a holiday party ... for herself. She's invited a motley crew of Broadway denizens. When acid-tongued gossip columnist, Fritzi Frost arrives and manages to insult and incite everyone at the party, it's no wonder that she ends up dead - face down in the bathtub eggnog. Everyone in attendance is a suspect and it's up to Lt. Donner from the NYPD to solve the murder.
THE TALE OF CYNDI
AN ORIGINAL DANCICLE FORM WEST TEXAS DANCING RAIDERETTES
DECEMBER 22 & 23, 2022. •. 7:30pm
written by Treva Ellison
directed by Nariah Eddington, Lily Anna Gomez, Sanaiah McCullough, and Wenzdae Phenix
West Texas Dancing Raiderettes return with their annual production of The Tale of Cyndi, a modern adaptation of the beloved tale Cinderella. This tale will be filled with plot twists and remixes and it’s one Christmas show you won't want to miss! This dancicle is a full student led- project. The students will create choreography, select costume pieces, run sound, and lights. Student-led projects have a strong potential to actively engage students, reinforce and expand upon science content learned through conventional pedagogical approaches. They can bring active, social, and affective learning into a wide range of instructional environments and leave students feeling empowered to share their knowledge with broader audiences. In doing so, these projects offer a means to overcome many challenges of climate change education.

ANNOUNCING THE 2022-23 SEASON!
Introducing the 2022-23 LCT Season!
We're starting off with a bang this year: the Bob Fosse classic CHICAGO! Then in October we have a heartfelt coming of age story about sisters, friendship, fantasy role-playing and discovered truths in Qui Nguyen's SHE KILLS MONSTERS. We ring in the Holiday season with IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY, which reimagines the classic story you know and love as a live radio broadcast in 1947! After the Holiday break (and just in time for Valentine's Day) we bring you romantic comedy, Bekah Brunstetter's THE CAKE. Then it's the Regional Premier of the drama NO ROOM FOR A PICTURE ON THE BLANK WALL. And finally, we close out the season with a musical tale of love, adventure, and crime in BONNIE & CLYDE: THE MUSICAL. Tickets for all of these shows are on sale now, or you can opt for a season ticket package!
