It’s Christmas Eve 1945, and only a few of WVL Radio’s actors have braved the blizzard to perform that evening’s broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life.
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on the beloved American holiday classic movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists. 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.
