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

Friday, November 22, 2019 to Sunday, December 22, 2019

 

 

Adapted by WVR Repoley from the motion picture by Frank Capra 

Meet George Bailey and all the residents of Bedford Falls as you’ve never seen—or heard— them before! Based on the classic Frank Capra film, this story comes to life as a live, 1940s radio broadcast. Five actors give voice to all the memorable Bedford Falls characters, accompanied by sound effects and music created live on stage.  

The whole family can enjoy this timeless tale of a lovable fellow down on his luck and ready to end it all – until an Angel Second Class shows him life’s true value. Ring in the season as Clarence earns his wings with this beloved fable of how one life can make a very big difference to the lives of so many.
