Holiday Drama by Joe Landry

Director Michele Beeler


It's Christmas Eve 1946. Members of the WBFR radio station are coming together for a radio performance of "It's a Wonderful Life," and you are invited to be their live studio audience.

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.


“One of the best holiday shows around. This is a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption.” —Mary Houlihan, Chicago Sun-Times
