Photo Flash: First Look at Sierra Rep's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY, Now Playing

Sierra Repertory Theatre brings the spirit of the holiday season to its East Sonora stage with Joe Landry's live 1940s radio broadcast version of the beloved film It's A Wonderful Life, playing now through December 22. Seven actors play dozens of characters, while a foley artist produces the sound effects, all in front of their live studio audience. Check out a first look below!

The engaging and spirit-lifting tale follows George Bailey as he learns that "no man is a failure who has friends." After a lifetime of dreaming, George finds himself still at home in Bedford Falls, blessed with a wife and children and often helping those in need through his inherited loan company. But when a large amount of money suddenly goes missing, George wonders if the people he loves would be better off without him. Enter Clarence, an angel in line to earn his wings. Clarence shows George a world without George Bailey, proving just what a wonderful life George possesses.

It's A Wonderful Life: The Live Radio Play opens November 15 and runs through December 22 at the East Sonora Theatre on Mono Way. Most Thursday and Friday performances begin at 7 p.m., Saturday evening shows begin at 8 p.m., and Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m. There will be one Thursday 2 p.m. matinee on December 19, and a special "talk back" with the performers follows the evening performance on Thursday, November 21. General admission ranges from $26-$32 depending on the day of the performance, with senior, student and child rates available. The show is rated G.
