Based on the classic film by Frank Capra. This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. An inspirational, heartwarming story about giving and receiving, about life and all the paths we walk, about true and lasting love and guardian angels. Morpheus Theatre very proudly welcomes you to Bedford Falls with this holiday favourite, presented from the perspective of a radio show cast with a live studio audience, and live foley sound effects.

"One of the best holiday shows around. This is a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption."
