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.
