For an amature production it was Very good. The seats we had were also good. The 4 of us enjoyed it very much. Could see us sitting there back in the 40's, watching the radio show. Very authentic.

Description

Adapted by Phillip Grecian from the film by Frank Capra. Directed by John Francis. Produced by Roxie Lee.

Just in time to usher in the holidays, the Frank Capra classic arrives at WCT as a full-on radio broadcast. Whittier Community Theatre turns their theatre into a radio studio, complete with live sound-effects, local commercials and enough nostalgia to stuff a turkey. Join WCT for an evening of entertainment the way George Bailey and family enjoyed it.
