The Zanesville Community Theater in partnership with the Renner Theater presents the 23rd Annual Angel Tree Benefit.

Every year the Director of the play, Rich Tolliver with help from other local directors and producers writes a new script that he tailors to fit the cast. This year there are more than 70 participants in the play titled "The Last Christmas on Radio. "

"It’s circa 1949 and we actually have a progressive thinking woman who decides to turn a radio station into a tv show, so it’s all about the transition where you cannot see to tv where obviously you are seen and things like that, " said Stage Manager, Shelley Tolliver.

On Sunday the cast held a rehearsal to make sure that all the scenes were ready for the public. Performer, Alice Mauk says she thinks that people will enjoy the humorous tone of the performance.

"I think the funniest parts are with the kids. There are quite a few comedy acts but when you get 30 kids on stage anything is going to happen," said Mauk.

The show will be performed December 12th, 13th and 14th at 8 p.m. at Renner Theater on 7th Street,  and there will also be a matinee show on Sunday, December 15th 2:30 p.m. The price of admission is up to the guests. All of the proceeds will go towards Christmas at the Salvation Army. For more information you can visit the Zane Trace Players website or give them a call by phone at 740-453-8481.
