Kyle Borcz plays George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life, a Radio Play, the holiday show in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Philip Grecian adapted the script based on the film directed by Frank Capra.
Question: What is fun about being in this production of It's a Wonderful Life, a Radio Play?
Kyle Borcz: The fun is the challenge of it. The story covers such a wide time frame that it's fascinating to try to play that only vocally. I hope the audience will hear George age a little bit.
Q: What is your favorite holiday book, song or movie?
K.B.: It's A Christmas Story, without fail. There is something of every family in that movie, whether you relate to Ralphie or see your Dad in the Old Man. I love the portrayal of the family, it's perfect.
