We have a very good theater in Big Bear, in fact we have two although I've not been in the other one.  The Performing Arts Center put on an interesting play the other day.  It was "It's a Wonderful Life," the classic shown many times on the screen with James Stewart.
This play however was set in a 1940's New York radio station and we were the audience there.
It had quite a big cast and they all had a turn at the various mikes located around the stage/set.
Perhaps the most fascinating was the sound effects team.  The head of that often changed his shoes to bright red female ones to walk around a floor mounted microphone before the door was banged, telling of a woman's departure from the scene. 
Once again I was amazed at the sheer professionalism of these local actors.  It was a most interesting experience.
