It’s a Wonderful Life

Adapted for radio-on-stage from the Frank Capra film by Tony Palermo. Directed by Pauline Armour

main house

december 4th – 12th (not sunday 6th)



We are thrilled to announce our December production –that most iconic of Christmas stories – ‘It’s a Wonderful Life!’

We are presenting  the ‘for radio-on-stage’  version of the play based on the Frank Capra film which means that the setting on the stage will be a 1940’s radio station and our BLT theatre audience will be the live studio audience– encouraged to applause and laugh when cued by the sound effects artist. Tony Palermo’s adaptation remains faithful to the classic American film and introduces all 34 of your favourite and perhaps not so favourite characters.

The story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. It takes the help of the lovable angel Clarence for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of Christmas. The play will be performed by 12 versatile actors who will bring to life all the roles from 5 year old children, to 80 year old townsfolk and of course the ageless Clarence who so desperately needs to earn his wings. As in all American radio performances of the 1940’s, there are commercial breaks which advertise the sponsors of the show. There will be four -part harmony jingles with of course a Christmas theme. We welcome anyone who would like to be a sponsor and will be happy to create an onstage advert!! Just let us know.

 IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE! – a timeless heart warming story for the whole family, a lively ensemble of talented actors, music, fun advertisements – be prepared to laugh out loud, perhaps shed a little tear – but most of all have a good night out!!

Book sure to book early.
