This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. The message that this show gives to audiences is very simple but something very important. It gives everyone a sense of belonging, that every life, family, relationship, and community matters!
