About the event

The inspirational and heart-warming Christmas classic gets the Lost Boys treatment.

Join The Lost Boys as they attempt to produce a live audio-play recording of the Christmas favourite, It’s A Wonderful Life, whilst exploring how the movie journeyed from Hollywood failure to feel-good, festive film success in this new theatrical adaptation. Based on the original screenplay by Frank Capra and the source material "The Greatest Gift" by Philip Van Doren, follow George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others. When he reaches crisis point on Christmas Eve, the intervention of his guardian Angel Clarence Odbody, shows him all the lives he has touched and what the world would be like if he did not exist.

Starring you as the live studio audience, a small cast, a few microphones, and an array of objects for live sound effects. Expect a tickling of the funny bones and a tugging of the heartstrings in this new Christmas production.
