About the project and the company

It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

Adapted by Joe Landry
Based upon the works by Greatest Gift Corporation

Director: Craig Schieber

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940’s 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. A sound foley artist will add to the fun of recreating a behind the scenes view of an art form from days gone by.

The setting is radio studio A at WBFR in Manhattan, New York, Christmas Eve, 1946.

Character breakdown / Project needs
Foley Artist (Any gender identity)
No lines, but will create most of the sound effects in the show. Although the foley artist will not have lines, they will be a key aspect of the play, and will still be playing a character. Great stage presence and energy will add dimension and visual interest to this unique version of a classic story.
