"It's a Wonderful Life - A Live Radio Play" - Presented by the Oil Lamp Theater, 1723 Glenview Road, Glenview. Running now through Dec. 29. Tickets - $40, group and student rates available
Love the movie "It's a Wonderful Life?" This radio play of Wonderful Life closely follows the plot of the 1946 Frank Capra film. However, audience members experience the story through the unique lens of a live "golden age of radio" studio production, complete with flashing "applause" signs, Christmas carol sing-alongs, and clever commercial jingles performed by the cast. Only seven actors bring the dozens of characters to life in a 1946 radio play -- complete with sound effects - that tells the story of George Bailey, a young man whose troubles lead him to wish he'd never been born.
