A Festive Family Christmas Classic

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. An ensemble of five actors, with the help of live sound effects, brings a few dozen characters to life on the stage, sharing the story of idealistic George Bailey as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.

Why now?

  • ​George Bailey’s story shows how important one life is to a community and how essential the community is to one life. 

  • Festive and poignant; charming, funny, heartfelt adaptation of the classic holiday story.

  • The radio play format highlights the talents of six actors performing more than three dozen roles and all the sound effects--the magic of theater.
