It's a Wonderful Life

Img: It's a Wonderful LifeIt’s A Wonderful Life is a five-time Academy Award winning film that remains one of the most inspirational American movies of all time. This new adaptation of the classic story, set in the fictional studio of WVL Radio Theatre, breathes new life into the timeless tale. Struggling to stay on air, professional voice actors are unable to travel in through the snowy, winter night. A small fearless group of employees manage to create more than 30 characters and scenes using their voices and a sound effects table.

Taking you back to the Golden Age of Radio, the story — 60 years later — remains as relevant as ever, leaving messages of hope and optimism. The creative retelling of the uplifting story is the perfect remedy for today’s commercialized, stressfueled holiday season.
