ADIRONDACK REGIONAL THEATRE PRESENTS
It’s a Wonderful Life – The Live Radio Play
This holiday season, bring the family to a show with a twist on a heartwarming classic as Adirondack Regional Theatre presents It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. This inventive interpretation of Frank Capra’s classic film brings the ever-timely story of disaster, redemption and holiday magic to life on stage.
It is December 24, 1946 and a small group of actors have gathered in Studio A of WART Radio for a live broadcast, ready to take on dozens of characters and recreate Bedford Falls with live Foley sound effects and virtuosic, high-energy performances to bring It’s a Wonderful Life live to the listening audience.
The ensemble re-enacts the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, Bailey, compassionate yet disheartened, is at the end of his rope. His troubles seem to know no end and eventually lead him to wish he’d never been born. The response to his wish is a visit from an angel, Clarence, who shows Bailey how different life for those he loves would be were it not for George’s contributions. Bailey comes to realize his positive impact on the world, the countless lives he has touched and just how blessed he has truly been.
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play for ONE NIGHT ONLY – Friday, December 17 at 8 pm. Plattsburgh’s Strand Theatre, 25 Brinkerhoff Street. Tickets are just $15.00.

STRAND CENTER PRESENTS
Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon
Sunday, December 19, 2021
7:00 to 10:00 pm
The unlikely partnership between acoustic guitar pioneer Leo Kottke and Phish bassist Mike Gordon continues with the long-awaited Noon, their first new album in 15 years. Couching late-night melancholy in a summer lilt, Noon features 11 tracks of warmly askew folk-pop, intricate playing, and the intimate third voice created by Kottke and Gordon, two of the most accomplished and idiosyncratic instrumentalists in American music. As creative as it is dextrous, under other circumstances, Noon might be hailed as a breakthrough third album from a young band.
