Christmas Eve, 1946: George Bailey, the nicest guy in town, but in a terrible predicament, is perched precariously on a bridge threatening suicide. Enter Clarence, George's guardian angel who has not yet earned his wings. Clarence shows George what Bedford Falls would be if George had never been born!
Directed by Charlotte Moore, this favorite Christmas Season drama is brought vividly to life in Anthony E. Palmero's stage adaptation of Frank Capra's classic film of sacrifice and redemption in small town America.
Set in a radio station in the 1940's with a live sound FX artist this poignant drama comes to life with six actors portraying 25 characters.
