The reading will take place tomorrow (December 5th) from 5pm – 9pm Pacific Standard Time.
In addition, the It’s a Wonderful Life Table Read will include a musical performance by Wallows, a silent action of Hollywood memorabilia and a sweepstakes brimming with gifts.
According to a recent piece on MovieWeb, the reading will also feature autistic actors Naomi Rubin, Spencer Harte and Dominic Brown (TV’s Atypical) along with neurodivergent TEAFC members Ryan Booth and Lucas Salusky who all actively participate in expressive enrichment programs at the center.
For those unfamiliar, The Ed Asner Family Center was created to support neurodivergent individuals and their families seeking wholeness in all attitudes of life. The Center acts as an oasis of balance and thought, of interaction and education. Most importantly, The Center gives children and adults of all levels of ability a chance at dignity, confidence, and self-respect. At The Ed Asner Family Center, they not only cater to the needs of the neurodivergent individual, they aim to enroll the complete family and help them meet the challenges they face with grace.
Tickets range from $25.00 for a chance to view the event up to $149.00 for some of the package options shown above. You can purchase tickets here.
