It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play will be presented December 1-26, 2021.

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will celebrate the holidays with It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. This heartwarming holiday production, adapted by Joe Landry from the screenplay by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra, and Jo Swerling, offers the beloved 1946 film as a 1940s era radio play, complete with live foley-style sound effects.

Presented in a fun and theatrical style, this live radio-play version of the holiday favorite, told by five nimble actors who take on dozens of roles and provide all of the live sound effects, immerses audiences in George Bailey's iconic tale of love, loss, and redemption on Christmas Eve. Directed by TheatreWorks Artistic Associate and Director of New Works Giovanna Sardelli, It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play will be presented December 1-26, 2021 at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. For tickets (starting at $30) more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (877)-662-8978.

TheatreWorks has announced COVID-19 health and safety requirements and will require proof of vaccination and masks for all staff and audience members entering any of its theatres, offices, and public spaces through December 31, 2021. Patrons must present a vaccination card, a photo of the card, or a digital vaccine record (myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov) with matching photo ID. Patrons who are legally exempted from being vaccinated must reach out to the TheatreWorks Box Office at least four days prior to their performance. All attendees must remain masked while indoors.

It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play will also be offered via video streaming, allowing patrons to watch either from home or in-theatre, making these shows accessible to additional audience members, including those unable or unready to attend in- person. More information will be available soon at TheatreWorks.org.

It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play received its first professional production at Westport Country Playhouse, and the radio play adaptation debuted at Stamford Center for the Arts. Since then, this yuletide hit has since been enjoyed by audiences at theatres across the country.

TheatreWorks has assembled a stellar cast of five actors who will take on dozens of roles bringing Bedford Falls to life and sharing the story of this classic holiday film.
