Directed by Brendan Wahlers
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in. It’s a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
