Holiday Classic Comes to Capital Stage

Limited Run of Special Holiday Classic
Only Two Performances

On Monday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m., and Christmas Eve, December 24, at 2:00 p.m., Capital Stage will present one of America's most beloved holiday classics as a 1940's live radio play. This family-friendly fundraiser will feature the company's artistic team of Stephanie Gularte, Peter Mohrmann, Janis Stevens and Jonathan Rhys Williams as well as Cap Stage favorite Harry Harris.

All proceeds from this event will help support the nonprofit Capital Stage and its mission to grow bold, dynamic, professional live theatre in our region!

Inspired by the classic American film of the same title, "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" is performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience. Five actors perform the dozens of characters in the radio play as well as produce the sound effects.

"Listen" Back in Time

Imagine it's Christmas Eve, 1946, in Studio A at WBFR in Manhattan, New York. The actors arrive for a special live radio performance of "It's a Wonderful Life." You'll hear all your favorites--including George Bailey, Mary, Clarence Oddbody, Mr Potter, Uncle Billy, even
Zazu--and all the other wonderful characters that make up Bedford Falls.

Capital Stage's production of David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries might belong on Santa's "naughty" list. So, in the interest of being "nice," Capital Stage is pleased to present this family-friendly production of It's a Wonderful Life: a Radio Play.
