It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

November 29 - December 22, 2019

Adapted by Joe Landry


What better way to ring in the holiday season than with Frank Capra’s classic film brought to life as a 1946 radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials and a live foley (sound effects) artist. Step into the past and enjoy the spectacle of six actors and actresses providing all the characters of the classic story, providing heartwarming hilarity. George Bailey, a man with all the right stuff except luck, takes stock of his life one fateful Christmas Eve. His feckless guardian angel Clarence shows him that success can be measured in many ways, leading to an ending warmer than a hot mug of cocoa on a cold winter’s night. Fun for the whole family!
