This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast.
Frank Capra’s holiday movie classic — with George, Mary, Zuzu and the entire town of Bedford Falls! — comes to life in this delightful staged reading performed as a 1940s radio broadcast! Complete with live Foley sound effects and featuring just a handful of actors playing dozens of roles, the story of beleaguered building and loan owner George Bailey and his affable helper angel, Clarence, unfolds one fateful Christmas Eve as you’ve never seen it before.
This is truly a labor of love for all of us here at SLO REP; bringing a little holiday cheer to our community after a very long dry spell. Join us to rediscover this beloved holiday classic and remember why it truly is… A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL LIFE!
This show will run approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
PLEASE NOTE: Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test result required to attend. Face masks to be worn while in the theatre. Please read our Health & Safety Information before purchasing your tickets.
