Penfold Theatre Company to Present IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, 12/5-22
Back by popular demand, the show draws audience members back in time to 1946 as members of the KPNF radio station are assembling for a live radio performance of It's a Wonderful Life. Through dozens of characterizations and live foley sound effects, five talented actors tell the entire story, putting an imaginative twist on a cherished holiday tradition. Guests of all ages will fall in love with George Bailey and his timeless tale of despair, redemption and hope all over again.
The show takes place in Round Rock's new Christmas Towne, an extension of the Trail of Lights, which debuted last year to tremendous success. In addition to It's a Wonderful Life: a live radio show, the Towne features elaborate light decorations, historic holiday displays, food, train rides, petting zoo, a chance to meet Santa, and more - all coordinated by the City of Round Rock's Parks & Recreation Department.
Guests can enjoy holiday treats as they watch the show, which features mock radio commercials of local businesses and a nightly cameo role for a selected member of the audience. The show returns after two sold out holiday seasons, so guests are encouraged to make their reservations early.
