From the original director and Ensemble that brought this holiday tradition to Chicago since 2004. Join the American Blues family as we take you back to a 1940s radio broadcast of Frank Capra’s holiday classic “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with live Foley sound effects, an original score, and a stellar cast of seven that bring the entire town of Bedford Falls to life. From the moment you walk through the doors, you will be transported back to the Golden Age of Radio, and experience the story of George Bailey like never before. Critics called this production “perfect Christmas theater” and “first-class holiday fare.”
Cast: Kevin R. Kelly*, John Mohrlein*, Gwendolyn Whiteside*, Dara Cameron*, James Joseph*, Michael Mahler*, Ian Paul Custer, and Shawn J. Goudie.
