Turn back the clock to the 1940s and set the dial for a dose of holiday nostalgia. This spin on a traditional favorite hearkens back to the golden age of radio when families gathered together for inspirational broadcasts and wholesome entertainment. Cleverly conceived and drawn directly from the classic film, savvy studio actors employ their vocal talents and live radio sound effects to re-imagine the much-loved tale of George Bailey’s journey of self-worth. Perfect for the whole family, revisit this vibrant celebration of simple goodwill, community, and perseverance in the face of hardship.
