Now Showing: "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play"
It's Christmas Eve 1946, and members of the WBFR radio station are coming together for a radio performance of "It's a Wonderful Life." Watch as five actors bring the entire story to life, playing dozens of characters and performing live foley sound effects in the style of "A Prairie Home Companion." With this imaginative re-telling, you'll fall in love with George Bailey and his timeless tale of despair, redemption and hope all over again. Performance dates are Dec. 5-7 and 11-13, with a preview performance on Dec. 3. Pierre Players is also taking this show on the road for a performance at the Miller High School on Nov. 30 and the Scherr Howe Arena in Mobridge on Dec. 14. Learn more.
