Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni are in the cast and creative/production team of It’s a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago!, American Blues Theatre‘s annual holiday show. The production runs November 26 through December 31 at Victory Gardens Theatre, 2433 N. Lincoln, Chicago.
Performed in the manner of a live 1940s radio broadcast, the production — based on the beloved Frank Capra film — features Foley sound effects executed in full view of the audience by Columbia College alum Shawn Goudie ’04, an actor and Foley Artist. And Columbia alum Grant Sabin ’05, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s Theatre Design program, is the show’s scenic designer. Gowdie and Sabin are both Artistic Affiliates of American Blues Theatre.
