Port Washington Play Troupe is proud to present "It's A Wonderful Life -a Radio Play" staged live for two performances at the Library on Friday, December 15 at 7:00 PM and on Sunday December 17 at 3:00 PM. This American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast in an adaptation by Bob Nissen. With the help of a full ensemble, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve...only to be reminded how much he has to live for.  This charming production will include singers and old-time radio jingles, as well as live sound effects by a foley artist.  This is a “not to be missed” event for the whole family and is presented free to the public. Nearly a century old, the PW Play Troupe is the community's oldest theater organization, presenting high-quality musicals, plays, and special musical performances. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is the proud recipient of the 2023-2024 Gina Farasciano Community Theater Grant awarded by Hearts PW.
