It's a Wonderful Life

A Live Radio Play

This inventive twist on Frank Capra’s classic film brings the ever-timely story of disaster, redemption and holiday magic to life on stage before your eyes and ears. It’s Christmas Eve, 1946, and five actors have gathered in WFMK Studio A for a live radio broadcast, ready to take on dozens of characters and recreate Bedford Falls with live foley sound effects and virtuosic, high-energy performances. Even the cynics among us will cheer as George Bailey, standing on the brink of despair, famously learns that "no man is a failure who has friends.” For all ages.

“Evocative and heartwarming.” - The New York Times
