What's it About?

The holidays are not complete without certain traditions: Aunt Mabel’s fruitcake, a cup of eggnog and a heartwarming rendition of It’s a Wonderful Life on late-night TV. This beloved American holiday classic will captivate you as an ensemble of actors brings dozens of characters to life in a 1940’s radio broadcast; created live before you on the stage. Experience the story of idealistic George Bailey as he struggles to cope with misfortune and considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve in a version never-before-seen in central Ohio. Appropriate for ages 10 and up.
