Rantoul Theatre Group’s “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Frank Capra's film "It's a Wonderful Life" has become a staple of the Christmas season. It celebrates hard work, fair play and the love and support of family and community. Beginning this weekend, Rantoul Theatre Group will present a staged version of this classic, and we'll have several of the actors read scenes from the show on the Tuesday edition of "Live and Local."

Red Mask Players in Danville; Milton Scott, director of the choral group Opus 24

At 72 years and counting, Red Mask Players in Danville is one of the oldest community theaters in the state. They complete their run of Tom Jones this weekend, and we'll have two of their members on the Friday edition of "Live and Local." I'll also talk with Milton Scott, director of the choral group Opus 24, which gives its Fall concert in Decatur next week.

Arcadia Chamber Players; JACK Quartet

On the Thursday edition of "Live and Local," we'll meet members of the Arcadia Chamber Players, who give their fall concert Friday night. And we'll visit with the JACK Quartet, in residence at the University of Illinois this week. They've been called "a four man super squad armed with bows and strings," and one of their number was locally born and raised.
