It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play


Adapted by Joe Landry                                             Directed by Craig Hall

A classic holiday tale told 1940's radio style! 

We will celebrate the holiday season with one of the most iconic Christmas stories every told! It's A Wonderful Life is the classic tale of George Bailey, Clarence the Angel and the town of Bedford Falls. When misfortune befalls George Bailey on Christmas Eve, he is shown what his town and his family would be like if he had never lived. Conceived as a live 1940's radio broadcast, a cast of 5 actors will bring this classic holiday story of love and redemption to life on our stage!
