NINE LIVES: 
"It's a Wonderful Life" 
reaches ninth season milestone for 
New Orleans and region

Recordings of The NINTH annual New Orleans and region benefit production of "It's a Wonderful Life will be broadcast live worldwide on Friday 22nd and Sunday 24th December 2017, from the Gretna Cultural Center for the Arts and The Valiant Theater, New Orleans, respectively.

Produced by non-profit The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation annually since its debut on the New Orleans scene in 2009, the  annual radio-play on-stage has raised over $20,000 in support of non-profit organizations throughout the region, with this years beneficiaries being the respective venues themselves, both of which are also non-profit organizations.

This year's production is narrated by award-winning voice talent and the voice behind the hit TV show "New Orleans Live", Ernest Robertson. Returning to the lead roles are William "Bill" Lee as George Bailey (in authentic Jimmy Stewart style) and Lorraine LeBlanc as Mary Hatch Bailey, both of whom have won awards for their roles in previous productions of "It's a Wonderful Life".

Also among the highly-polished and professional voice cast are international sportscaster and former professional wrestler Paul Eubanks, who debuts as the evil Henry Potter; while producer and director Stephen James reprises his humorous and highly-popular slightly oafish interpretation as Angel Clarence.
