Synopsis: This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. With the help of an ensemble and an angel named Clarence, George Bailey learns the million different ways that we are tied to those around us.

What is a live radio play? Before television, the largest popular form of entertainment was the radio. Much like today, families would have their dinner and then sit around the radio waiting to hear either the news or their favorite radio program. Radio shows were usually done by just a few actors playing multiple characters and there was a person responsible for all of the sounds created during the show. “Commercial Breaks” were done by the same actors that enacted the plays!

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is directed by Anna Oxborrow and includes Nathan Irwin, Jeramie Glass, Greg Blume, Chris Peterlin, Megan Johnston, Celeste Matheson, and Grace Blume.
