For the holidays, we will be producing It’s a Wonderful Life: A Radio Play. This beloved American classic comes to life as a 1940s radio broadcast starring a cast of Northern Stage favorites. In the age of social distancing, we’re thrilled to offer a message of hope and love that can reach the homes of every family in the Upper Valley and beyond this holiday season.
This is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been squashed by family obligations and civic duty, and whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair, and to remind him – by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born – that he has had, after all, a wonderful life.
Tickets are not yet on sale for this production. Please consider joining our community not only for our performances, but as a member of the theater. With a tax-deductible donation of $150 per person, our new Ensemble Membership replaces our regular Northern Stage subscription and will provide one complimentary ticket to each of our professional productions through May 31, 2021. Additionally, Ensemble Members will have access to booking any live events we are able to offer before the general public. We see this as a significant perk to membership, because it is likely the number of live tickets we will be able to offer may be only 15% of what has been available in years past due to new, socially-distanced regulations. Your support through the Ensemble Membership will help us chart a path to success in the year ahead and truly makes a difference to our trajectory.
