It's a Wonderful Life Live Radio Play

Trinity Lutheran Church is thrilled to bring back It’s a Wonderful Life for its second year as part of their Christmas programming. Adapted and directed by Greg Cicchino, It’s a Wonderful Life performs live at Trinity Lutheran on December 8th and 9th at 7pm and December 10th following the 10am service, beginning at noon.

Benefit tickets are a $25 suggested donation for adults; $15 for students, seniors, and veterans; Children under 6 Free. This holiday classic, directed by legendary director Frank Capra, based on the short story “The Greatest Gift” by Philip Van Doren Stern, and starring the Hollywood luminaries James Stewart and Donna Reed is the iconic American Christmas story. It continues to garner over 4.5 million views when it is aired each year. It tells the story of George Bailey, the quintessential American, whose sense of duty to family and community cause him to put his own dreams on hold year after year. When something goes terribly wrong and George considers making the ultimate decision, a little help from above shows him that he really does have a wonderful life. Produced in the style of a 1940s radio play and combined with classic holiday carols and an old fashioned foley table the City of Bedford Falls comes to life before your ears and eyes.
