ABOUT THE PLAY:
This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with live foley artists! 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. Four County Players is excited to return to a live holiday show for the first time since 2019 -- and it could not be a better time for this classic story about the value of life and importance of community.

NOTE: While this play is appropriate for the entire family, please use parental discretion in bringing any young children who may have trouble sitting through a full-length play. We recommend that you do not bring any children under the age of 4.
