About the Show:
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is set in WGLZ Playhouse of the Air, a 1940s radio studio theatre. Seven actors deliver all the lines from the classic film and create live sound effects. The plot follows the heartwarming story of George Bailey, a man who ─ after a series of unfortunate circumstances ─ wishes he had never been born. His mindset shifts from despair to joy after a visit from Clarence, his 292-year-old guardian angel. Clarence helps reawaken George’s appreciation of life by showing George what his world and loved ones’ lives would be like without him.
Tickets for the production will be available at the door, and guests are encouraged dress in ‘40s attire for an immersive theatrical experience. General admission tickets cost $10. General admission tickets are free to OTC students, faculty and staff who present a valid college ID at the door.
