The stage is set. It’s Christmas Eve in 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 station afloat. This clever stage adaptation breathes new life into the poignant story of George Bailey and Bedford Falls. The story of George Bailey and Bedford Falls is juxtaposed against a time of failing banks, devastatingly high unemployment and a shortage of affordable housing. The circumstances are eerily familiar, and over 60 years later, this story remains as fresh and relevant as ever. Its message of hope and optimism is the perfect antidote to holiday cynicism.

This live theater production is complete with “On Air” signs, multi-tasking actors and plenty of sound effects. It is as if you are sitting in your living room listening to the radio broadcast the scenes in the movie. You will need to bring your imagination and come prepared to be transformed to the town of Bedford Falls in 1940.
