Step back in time to a 1940s radio studio, where the enchanting tale of George Bailey, Clarence the angel, Mr. Potter, and the residents of Bedford Falls comes to life. This magical experience is brought to you by a talented group of five actors who skillfully recreate a 1940s radio broadcast. As holiday radio jingles set the festive mood, a foley artist uses clever props to create live sound effects, transporting the audience to a simpler era.
