More Information


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.
