The cast has been chosen and practices are well under way for Masquerade Theatre’s lastest production — “It’s a Wonderful Life!” For this play, the Masquerade Theatre board is offering something special for family and friends of cast members. They can show support for their favorite actor and help support the theater by purchasing a “Break-A-Leg” message. For only $10, a 25-word message will be included in the performance playbill. Messages may be purchased by mailing the message and a $10 check made out to Masquerade Theatre Inc. to “Break-a-Leg,” 1315 East Church St., Union City, TN 38261 or they may be purchased at Lanzer’s Printing in Union City, where tickets for the play will also be available starting Wednesday. Deadline for submissions is Nov. 21. The play is based on the classic Christmas tale, in which George Bailey questions the value and purpose of his life. With the aid of Clarence (Angel Second Class), George discovers that despite the hardships and ordeals (including dreams of lost youth, family sacrifices and the threat of financial ruin) his life is wonderful and rich. “It’s a Wonderful Life!” will be staged at the Capitol Theatre in Union City Dec 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees Dec 7 and 14 at 2 p.m. Cast members, with a split cast for some of the children’s roles, include: • George Bailey — John Blanton; • Clarence Odbody — Terry Overall; • Mrs. Gower — Karleen Sternisha; • Young George— Hunter Corley and Carter Arnold; • Harry Bailey — JoMykel Hepler; • Mother Bailey — Bonnie Gushard; • Aunt Tilly — Christy Alexander; • Violet Peterson — Anna Katherine Graham; • Bert — Alex Pegram; • Ernie — Alex Little; • Uncle Billy — David Houston; • Mary Hatch — Selle Shanks; • Henry Potter — Jeff Alexander; • Mr. Potter’s Goon — Wayne McLaughlin; • Mr. Potter’s Secretary — Stacey Neal Morris; • Mrs. Hatch — Dana Goodman; • Sam Wainwright — Robert Wilton; • Miss Andrews — Andrea James; • Mrs. Thompson — Jennie Overall; • Mr. Martini — Michael Chappell; • Mrs. Martini — Heather Simpson; • Miss Carter — Jessica Alexander; • Newspaper Boy — Jacob Virgin; • Pete Bailey — Braedon Barnett; • Tammy Bailey — Kimberly Schwartz and Bella Castro; • Zuzu Bailey — Daisye Byrd Graham and Erin Chandler; • Mr. Welch — Richard Graham; • Janie Bailey — Anna Oliver and Emma Blanton.
