Sherman Players present IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY December 9-18

The Sherman Players presents its final show of the 2022 season, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY, by Joe Landry. The show will be produced by Matt Austin and Michael Schaner and will be directed by Steve Stott of Brookfield. This production replaces the previously announced PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Kate Hamill.


Don’t touch your dial! America’s favorite holiday classic is live on stage at a 1940’s radio station, with every memorable character, wacky sound effect and the heartwarming conclusion of the film recreated live before your ears–and eyes! With humor and humanity, George Bailey’s tale of love, loss and redemption mixes an exuberant cast and a wealth of seasonal flair into a radio days hit come to life! A heaven-sent gift for the entire family. 


The cast features Dean Alexander, Matt Austin, Jessica Chesbro, Maya Daley, Heather Haneman, Joe Harding, Patrick Kelly, Michael Schaner, Steve Stott and Alexa Wild. Live Foley effects will be performed by Daisy Stott.
