It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

Show Information

The performance runs approximately two hours with an intermission. Don’t miss the final year and production of everyone’s favorite holiday tradition, It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Only seven actors bring the entire town of Bedford Falls to life in a 1946 radio play – complete with sound effects – to tell the story of George Bailey, whose troubles lead him to wish he had never been born. He is visited by the angel Clarence who comes to Earth on Christmas Eve to help George realize how many lives he has touched and just how blessed he has been and how different the world would be had he never been there. Our intimate Glenview theater space is transformed into the studio of New York radio station WBFR on Christmas Eve in 1946 for this warmhearted adaptation of the famous Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed film. But at Oil Lamp Theater, the magic isn’t only on the stage! Audiences will be captured by the tinsel-and-holly enchantment of a traditional Christmas from the moment they enter the theater. The tree is up in the lobby, holiday music is playing, and complimentary hot chocolate and cookies make for a festive and delightful experience! By Joe Landry Directed by Stephen Smith
