An ensemble brings more than two dozen characters from the novel to the stage of the WBFR radio station for a live broadcast, punctuated by 40s-era commercials.

"We encourage the audience to get into the spirit and come dressed in 1940s attire," Little Theatre spokeswoman Anita Prather Harvell said in a news release.

"Even though the story is familiar, we're (along with co-director Lynnea Calender) doing things a little differently in this show, so I really hope people make it out to see our take on the American classic," co-director Ian Corbett said.
