The University of Detroit Mercy’s theater company is putting a twist on Frank Capra’s iconic Christmas classic, It’s A Wonderful Life. This dynamic version will have seven actors portraying 40 different characters on a soundstage set during the Golden Age of radio. There will be over-the-top sound effects, 1940s glamour, and some surprises too. As a radio play, this version will focus ever keenly on storytelling as a guardian angel named Clarence helps a desperate George Bailey realize he truly has lived a wonderful life.
