Arrive early... Dress seems to be as fancy or casual as you want to make it (temp is not an issue)... Although all seats are very good -- those in the middle are of course the best....

What a delightful evening. The venue is small so everyone has good seats along with being warm and inviting. The play was so entertaining and fun. Kudos to all the actors. Nothing about it I didn't like. It's a holiday pick-me-upper.

This is the second year I have seen this show and most of the cast have returned. The show is very true to the movie and several of the characters even sound like the actors in the movie esp. George Bailey and Uncle Billy. You can watch the play...continued

This Cygnet production at the Old Town theatre is one of my favorite Holiday traditions. This was my 4th time seeing it over the last couple of years...the cast continues to excel in this radio show version of the 1939 Jimmy Stewart/Donna Reed...continued
