It's a Wonderful Life 2021 cancelled, new production next year - Habitat for Humanity donation from NVT

September 10th 2021

In consideration of those who have suffered as a result of the recent devastating hurricanes and storms along the Gulf coast and subsequently across the north-east, as well as the ongoing pandemic, the Board of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation has decided not to proceed with our annual Christmas fund-raising production this year, 2021.

We have produced the radio-play version of It's a Wonderful Life as a production workshop and an annual fund-raiser no fewer than TWELVE TIMES since the formation of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation in 2009, and this will be the first year we will have missed this hugely-popular event which has raised thousands of dollars in support of the community. Click here for details of our previous productions of It's a Wonderful Life.

In addition, we have also decided to "retire" It's a Wonderful Life and begin a new production in 2022, which we know everyone will enjoy immensely. So watch this space for further news, and we look forward very much to your support - whether as cast and crew or as audience members.

Incidentally, last year's production raised just shy of $1,000, so we are pleased to announce that the Foundation has donated $1200 to Habitat for Humanity in support of victims of the recent hurricanes. Thank you to everyone for your support in this magnificent effort and of the continuing efforts of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation.

New Board Members appointed

March 25th, 2021

The success of the Find Your Best Voice® voice-over workshops program from THE NOLA Voice Talent Foundation (NVT) goes from strength to strength as spaces for the events continue to be fully booked often within days of their dates being released.

The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation introduced a booking system for the program at the beginning of 2019, after its first in-person workshop in New Orleans of that year was not only a full house, but we had to turn people away because of space limits.

And every workshop ever since, including the Zoom workshops introduced more than a year ago, have been sold out. That's OVER TWO YEARS of sell-out events.

The program switched to Workshops via Zoom in the summer of last year as a result of restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and have been instrumental in spreading the reach of The NOLA Voice Foundation both across the nation and worldwide; with participants as far-flung as Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Maryland in the USA, and England in the UK - many of whom have become Registered Subscription Members of NVT.

Subscription Members receive the benefit of notification of workshops and other events in advance of general release, as well as other membership benefits.

Membership of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation is open to all performers of all ages - nationwide and worldwide


Annual subscription is only THREE DOLLARS (reduced to TWO DOLLARS for Full Members of SAG-AFTRA or Equity). There is no additional joining fee and membership subscriptions are renewed annually. Full details about Membership and the Programs of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation are at https://www.nolavoicetalent.org/membership

Details of the Find Your Best Voice® workshops program, available only from NVT, are at www.FindYourBestVoice.com which will take you directly to the workshops program page of the NVT Web-site.

The NATIONAL Voice Talent Foundation is the operating arm of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit incorporation which provides performers nationwide and worldwide with affordable education and opportunities, as well as to use our talent to support the community.
