Video Promo: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, A Live Radio Play, Fredericksburg Theater, December 9 - 18, 2016

It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is a stage play adaptation of Frank Capra's film classic. At the time of the film's initial release, it was popular for films to be adapted and performed live on the radio in front of a studio audience. This adaptation is set at a live radio broadcast in the late 1940s, with five actors playing all of the characters. Live sound effects and period commercials will be used to enhance the production and follow traditions of the period. This play challenges 5 actors and 2 sound effect artists to perform this beautiful story. In addition, three "Jingle singers" will enhance our play with providing the commercial jingles in the show as well as pre-show Christmas music. 

Scene Time: Christmas Eve, 1946
Place: The stage and auditorium of Studio A at WBFR in Manhattan, New York.
