We are pleased to announce that we are now touring this new production of the classic festive film all over Wales. Adapted for the stage by Joe Landry, it presents the film as a live radio broadcast in a 1940s New York radio station. Produced in association with the Pontardawe Arts Centre, Arts Council Wales and Tŷ Cerdd.

It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play

Inspired by the classic American film, It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience.

With the help of an ensemble of six actors and a live foley artist creating the sound effects, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. It will take help from a lovable angel, Clarence, for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the Christmas.

Wedi’i ysbrydoli gan y clasur o ffilm Americanaidd, mae It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play yn cael ei berfformio darllediad radio byw o’r 1940au o flaen cynulleidfa stiwdio.

Gyda cherddoriaeth fyw a chast o chwe actor, mae stori’r delfryduwr George Bailey yn agor wrthh iddo ystyried dod a’i fywyd i ben un Noswyl Nadolig du. Bydd angen cymorth yr angel hoffus, Clarence, i ddangos i achosi newid yn nghalon George ac iddo deall gwir ysbryd yr ŵyl.
