It’s a Wonderful Life: Live From WVL Radio Theatre

December 7, 2019 8 – 10 p.m.

This clever and wildly funny play within a (radio) play breathes new life into a timeless Christmas classic!

It’s Christmas Eve 1945, and only a handful of WVL Radio’s actors have braved the blizzard to perform that evening’s broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life and keep the radio station afloat.

A four-member company masterfully conquers multiple characters and sound effects as the story of George Bailey and Bedford Falls unfolds. The down on his luck Bailey considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve until an angel arrives to remind him how much he is loved. More than 60 years later, the story’s message remains as fresh and relevant as ever!

A story of hope and optimism that’s the perfect antidote to holiday cynicism!

Tickets: $25-$50 (eligible for Arts Center subscriber discounts)
