It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
Adapted By Joe Landry

Directed by John R Smith Jnr

Friday Dec 15 – 8 pm
Saturday Dec 16 – 1 pm / 8 pm
Sunday Dec 17 – 5 pm Followed by a Talkback w. the Playwright, Cast, & Production Team

Come join The Vagabonds for this completely out of character production as we celebrate our return to Bridgeport’s Hidden Gem with the story of George Bailey’s glimpse into the “What If” and a very healthy dose of Holiday Cheer.

Adapted from the classic film by Fairfield native, Joe Landry, It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play premiered in 1996 at Stamford Center for the Arts, and has since been produced around the country.

This unique take on the beloved, heartwarming story of George Bailey and the granting of his bleak and desperate Christmas wish by his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody, shifts from the silver screen to a 1946 radio studio. Where five actors are at their mics, broadcasting in front of a studio audience, performing as dozens of characters, all while accompanied on stage by live sound effects.

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play runs one weekend only – December 15-17, 2017.

Featuring: Juan Ayala, Betzabeth Castro, John T Lizsewski, Rachel Schulte and Ian C Smith, with Ainsley Andrade as the Foley Artist

Following the 5 pm show on Sunday December 17, VTC will welcome the playwright for a post-show talkback with the audience. Mr. Landry will join cast members and the VTC Production Team for a discussion with the audience.
