The classic holiday film It's A Wonderful Life gets a magical adaptation though January 1. Joe Landry;'s script takes the famous holiday story and recasts it as a live radio play. Audiences are transported back to see a unique kind of performance - live sound effects melded with a touching and funny story to create an aural masterpiece.

George Bailey famously learns that "no man is a failure who has friends" in It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Inspired by the classic holiday film, this holiday treat brings the spirit of the season to life live on stage right before your eyes (and ears). Performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience, five actors play the dozens of characters as well as produce the sound effects bringing to life the town of Bedford Falls. Let your imagination build the scene and see the story anew with this nostalgic and spirit-lifting tale.
