    Grosse Pointe Theatre proudly presents holiday favorite It’s A Wonderful Life – The Radio Show, from Friday, Dec. 10, to Sunday, Dec. 19. This adaptation of the beloved movie was created by Marty Bufalini, a professional actor, broadcaster, and director whose love of vintage radio makes for an exciting interactive audience experience. The production features live sound effects, as it is set in a 1940s radio studio. A classic story will be relived as George Bailey feels worthless amid life’s challenges until Clarence, an angel working to get his wings, illustrates the deep impact he has had on others. Please join us in community support of educational/youth programs and quality stage productions. Performances will benefit Grosse Pointe Theatre’s nonprofit operations as well as its annual Holiday Campaign fundraiser.
