DERBY LINE — QNEK Productions continues the celebration of its 24th season by presenting the holiday classic, It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, adapted by Joe Landry.

QNEK has developed a strong tradition of appetizing audience’s hearts for this “most wonderful time of the year,” with hilarious and thoughtful stage entertainment.

In this year’s holiday production, QNEK takes on a radio play version of the beautiful and iconic story that has become a Christmas Eve television staple of families for generations.

If you’ve never seen or heard it live, with sound effects, you won’t want to miss this chance.

Based on the famous 1946 film directed by Frank Capra, It’s A Wonderful Life, Joe Landry’s adaptation of this American holiday classic for all ages will transport audiences straight to Bedford Falls, NY, through a live 1940s radio broadcast.

The show is directed by Phil Gosselin.

The story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he discovers what the world would be like without him in it. This international cast features five actors playing all of the roles and doing all of the sound effects live on stage.

The show stars Steve Gonyaw, Marilee Andres, Aidan Mulroy, Tiffany Quinn, and Brian McCrae.

Close to 70 years after it’s screen debut, the story of George Bailey, Mary Hatch, Clarence the Angel, little Zuzu, and all of Bedford Falls still touches the hearts of all ages.

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play performs at the First Universalist Parish Hall in Derby Line on December 9 -11, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Refreshments will be served at all performances.
