How wonderful is this play. The scenery, decorations, ambience and above all, the acting. Its just very good theatre. I really like it and I never expected to be moved by a radio play.

Outstading radio play. highly recommend. Spend the little extra money to get seats in the middle so you can enjoy the entire production. Sound effect person is off to the right of stage. Don't miss his great sound effects.

This was a wonderful show. The cast is tight having done it several years in a row. It has become a holiday classic in San Diego. Not a bad seat in the house.

I love Cygnet at Old Town Theater and jumped at a chance to see a production there. And "It's a Wonderful Life" was fabulous. Really put us in the Christmas spirit. The cast was great and the whole play was very well done. Thank you Goldstar!
