IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE:
By Joe Landry
 
It’s Christmas Eve in 1946, and inside a radio studio, five performers bring life to over 44 characters to create a live broadcast of Frank Capra’s timeless film in all of its feel-good glory! Faced with a life of dreams deferred, George Bailey sets out to throw himself from a bridge — until a dotty angel-in-waiting shows him what might have been. The beloved holiday classic is brought to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast! Revisit Bedford Falls, fall in love again with George and Mary, and discover the magic of an angel named Clarence!
