It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
by Joe Landry
Directed by Gypsy Foster
Produced by Vada Foster and Alison Mattiza
November 8 – December 14, 2013
This beloved American holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940’s radio broadcast, set on the stage and auditorium of Studio A at WBFR in Manhattan, New York on Christmas Eve, 1946. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. Luckily the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody, shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. The production is appropriate for all age groups, so bring the entire family and enjoy this heart-warming holiday story together.

A special Kentwood Kares holiday discount of $2.00 will also be available at the box office on regular price tickets when you bring in a new or gently used coat or jacket which Kentwood Players will donate to the Los Angeles Mission in Downtown Los Angeles, a group caring for those down on their luck and in need of a warm coat or jacket this winter.
