Music Theatre of Connecticut MainStage, Fairfield County's professional award-winning theatre company continues its 34th Season with It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, just in time for the holiday season. From the screenplay by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra and Jo Swerling, and then adapted for the stage by Joe Landry, Its’ a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play will run two weekends both in the theatre and via live stream from December 11th-20th with performances on Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm and Saturdays & Sundays at 2pm.
This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast and stars four actors who perform the voices of dozens of characters while creating foley sound effects. As in the movie, everyman George Bailey must learn that “no man is a failure who has friends” (and a little divine intervention), when he must face off against local robber baron (and all around curmudgeon) Henry F. Potter. It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is the perfect holiday treat for the whole family!
