The beloved American holiday classic leaps to life on stage in a delightful, heartwarming new adaptation. 


It’s a Wonderful Life has a clever twist: it's staged as a play within a play, more specifically a radio play within a play. 


On Christmas Eve 1949, KMTC Radio St. Louis is prepared to perform a live radio broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life, when unexpected events transform the station’s staff into the radio play’s actors. Complete with microphones, live sound effects by a Foley artist, 1940s period costumes, and a diverse company of characters, the play tells the story of George Bailey and his discovery of the life-affirming message that one life can change the whole fabric of a community. 


Join us as we introduce a new generation to the favorite holiday tale!
