Description

For the fourth year in a row, we bring back our popular holiday show but this year it’s completely re-imagined and based on a new script. By using the magic of classical radio, this production brings the story of Bedford Falls alive in a way that only the unique, imaginative medium of radio can. Fans of the film will recognize all their favorite scenes and characters in vivid detail while newcomers will have the opportunity to experience Frank Capra’s holiday favorite in their own way. This is a holiday tradition that has delighted our audiences year after year.
