It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play Comes Home to STAGEStheatre for the Holidays

Fullerton CA—There aren’t many things that signal the beginning of the holiday season quite like watching It’s a Wonderful Life.  STAGEStheatre is proud to kick off the holiday season with the adaptation of this heartwarming classic. In Joe Landry’s adaptation, Its a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play it’s December 24, 1946 in Studio A at WSTG Radio and a cast of actors are preparing to present Its a Wonderful Life live to their listening audience. With the help of a pianist and a sound effects artist, the ensemble recreates the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, George Bailey, a compassionate yet disheartened businessman, is at the end of his rope, questioning his purpose in life. Just when he comes to believe that life is not worth the effort, some divine intervention allows him to see the way that his life has affected all those he loves, and he learns what his life is really worth.  Continue Reading

It seems the North Pole is in serious need of some SVU cops, or at the very least an HR office.

Deep Dark Reindeer Secrets : The Eight Reindeer Monologues @ The Chance Theatre in Anaheim – Review

Written by Scotty Keister 

Who knew the reindeer were so disgruntled? But considering the secrets we find out about the real Santa (not to mention his wife) in The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, it’s no freaking wonder. It’s also no wonder this is the 12th year the Chance Theater has brought this show back for Christmas. For those seeking out a particularly irreverent holiday show, they need seek no further.
