Celebrate the Holiday Season with this beloved American classic. This heartwarming story of renewal is presented as a 1940’s radio broadcast with sound effects performed live on stage.  With the help of an ensemble and an angel named Clarence, George Bailey learns the million different ways that we are tied to those around us.


In partnership with Pine Tree Society, Portland Stage is pleased to offer an ASL-interpreted performance of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play on Sunday, December 8th at 12pm.
