The Walpole Players are excited to be returning to the Helen Miller Theater in the Walpole Town Hall with a live holiday performance of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry. This well-loved holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, with a small ensemble of actors playing dozens of characters as the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds until one fateful Christmas Eve.
There will be two performances: Friday, Dec. 17, and Saturday, Dec. 18, both at 7:00 PM, with doors opening at 6:15. The audience will be seated in dinner theater style and should bring their own food and drink. Seating is limited, with six persons to a table and a total of ten tables each night, so make your plans now to attend! Why not get the whole family or a group of friends together and reserve an entire table just for your group?
Tickets can be purchased and table reservations made at Galloway Real Estate at 47 Main Street in Walpole. Tickets are $15 each ($10 under age 12). Please email WalpolePlayers@gmail.com or call (603) 756-2535, for more information.
For the safety of our audience members, actors, and our community at large, everyone in attendance will be required to wear a mask upon entering the building. Once you are seated at your table, you may remove your mask, but your mask must be worn if you leave your seat at any time for any reason. We also request that audience members be fully vaccinated. We will not be requiring proof of vaccination status, but we will be checking temperatures at the door. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher will be asked to leave, and a full refund will be given.
The Walpole Players will be holding auditions for IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE – A LIVE RADIO PLAY, on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 3:00 PM and Monday, Oct. 25 at 6:00 PM. Auditions will be held in the Helen Miller Theater on the second floor of the Walpole Town Hall. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, December 17 and 18, and we are hoping to limit rehearsals to just one day per week.
We ask that all those auditioning be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and to bring proof of vaccination to the audition.
If you have any questions, please send an email to WalpolePlayers@gmail.com.
The Walpole Players are in need of one or two Chaps in Black to help back stage during Jeeves Takes a Bow. Volunteers would need to attend one or two regular rehearsals as well as the dress rehearsal (Wednesday, Sept. 8, and performance (Saturday, Sept. 11).
We also need at least 3 or 4 people to help strike the set of Jeeves Takes a Bow, after the performance on Sept. 11. We will have several large set pieces, as well as the sound system (speakers, sound board, etc.), to carry from the Common back to the stage.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please email us at WalpolePlayers@gmail.com to let us know if you can volunteer your time.
