Historic Radio Broadcast of “It’s a Wonderful Life”

“It’s a Wonderful Life” the radio version, has come together nicely, as about 50 cast members have been meeting for months to bring this beloved story to life over the broadcasts of Great News Radio.
This radio drama will be produced in the Great News Radio studio, so that it will be broadcasted a few different times during the Christmas Season. It’s a “Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play” written by Joe Landry was written to bring Frank Capra’s film to life as a stage play. The play script follows the film script closely. We’ve received permission from the author to create a radio drama with his script and broadcast it.
The story is set in the 1930’s and 40’s in upstate New York. George Bailey, an ambitious young man who dreams of traveling the world, finds himself “trapped” in a small town that he has grown to detest. When his world falls apart and he is facing scandal and financial ruin, George cries out to God – and God answers his prayer in a most unusual way. It’s an inspiring story of love, hope, dreams and the true worth of each person.
There are 43 characters in this radio play, and you are in for a real treat as our special cast (possibly local friends and family of your) bring this beloved story alive.
