Don’t miss The Vagabonds’ return to where it all started: Bridgeport’s Hidden Gem – the beautiful, historic Bijou Theatre, for this completely out of character holiday production!

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play was adapted from the classic film by Fairfield native, Joe Landry, who will join the cast and crew for an audience Q&A following their final performance on Sunday Dec 17. It 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 the action from the silver screen to the WBFR Radio Studios in Manhattan, Christmas Eve 1946.

There, five actors are at their mics, broadcasting The WBFR Playhouse Of The Air in front of a live studio audience, performing as dozens of characters, accompanied on stage by live sound effects.

Featuring: Juan Ayala, Betzabeth Castro, John T Lizsewski, Eric Nesmith, Rachel Schulte and Ian C Smith
