The Moss Mansion invites you to begin your holiday season with a heartwarming production of It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play adapted by Joe Landry. Step back in time and experience a beloved holiday classic as a live 1940’s radio broadcast.  With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.

“We are thrilled to share this story’s beautiful message through an amazingly talented cast and crew” says Jenna Peete, Moss Mansion Director. “You’ll recognize some familiar faces!”  The production is directed by Susan Kennedy Sommerfeld and Assistant Director Susan Scariano and the all-star acting ensemble includes Craig Huisenga, Anjanett Hawk, Kelsey Steffan, Chuck Tooley, Marlene McCave and Shoots Veis.

Guests will enjoy an immersive old-time radio experience complete with flashing “applause” signs, fabulously clever sound effects and catchy jingles during commercial breaks…plus a few more surprises throughout the evening.

Performances of It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play run December 8, 9 and 10 (matinee). For evening performances, doors open at 6:30 pm and shows begin at 7:30 pm. For the Sunday, December 10 matinee, doors open at 1:00 pm and the show begins at 2 pm.  Come early to tour the Moss, vote for your favorite Christmas tree, shop in the gift shop, and visit our refreshments booth!  Proceeds benefit the care and preservation of the Moss Mansion and its priceless artifacts.
