It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

adapted by Joe Landry

directed by Geoffrey Kent

 

All his life George Bailey has given up his dreams to help others; now he’s ready to jump off a bridge in despair. Thank heavens second class angel Charles Odbody is there to save the day. Our version of the classic holiday film is staged as a 1940’s radio drama with a live audience (this means you), and we promise to warm your hearts all over again!

Murray says: “This is just great stuff. Most of us know the beloved film, and many of us return to it each holiday season. It’s a story of spiritual salvation that's touching without ever being sappy. We think it will make you feel even better when it comes alive as a radio play in our theatre, a familiar classic made completely new again. Guaranteed to warm your family’s hearts all season long.”
