It's A Wonderful Life:
|December 4 - 29, 2013|
"No man is a failure who has friends."
Inspired by Frank Capra's cinematic classic, this beloved holiday treat brings the spirit of the season to life right before your eyes. Performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience, five actors play the dozens of characters in Bedford Falls as well as produce all the sound effects.
A nostalgic blend of holiday cheer and theatrical magic, you will fall in love all over again with George Bailey and the angel named Clarence who saves his life on Christmas Eve.
Join us as roaming telegraph boys and popcorn girls in period costumes transform the Lowndes Shakespeare Center into a vintage, New York City radio studio on Christmas Eve. The pre-show action begins thirty minutes prior to show time. Visit the Orlando Shakes blog for more details!
It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.
“Warm(s) the heart of theatergoers from age 8 to 28 to 58 to 88… I was won over by the charm and enthusiasm of the acting company.” - Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
