Downers South presents “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play”

On Friday, Dec. 15 and Saturday, Dec. 16, Downers Grove South High School Drama students will perform, “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry.” Both performances begin at 7 p.m., with a festive Holiday Sing-a-Long before the show at 6:30 p.m. Complimentary refreshment will be served.

“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is based on the classic and five-time Oscar nominated holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
