Jump into the spirit of the holiday season with The American Blues Theater’s adaptation of a “It’s a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago!”
This adaptation of Frank Capra’s holiday classic turns the film into a live radio show. Aside from hearing the great story of George Bailey’s selfless actions and his realizations that his loved ones need him as much as he needs them, audiences can enjoy holiday carols, actual radio commercials from real sponsors, and milk and cookies with the cast and crew of the American Blues Theater’s adaptation.
On Dec. 17 all children under the age of 12 will receive a special keepsake and a visit from Santa, and on Dec. 26 children will receive other keepsakes for the Hanukkah performance.
