Merry Christmas, George Bailey! Runs 12/2-12/13 on the Main Stage of the Labuda Center

Act 1 presents a clever, theatrical spin on the original Lux Radio Broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life with Merry Christmas, George Bailey!

This holiday season, Act 1 DeSales University Performing Arts will present Merry Christmas, George Bailey! The production runs December 2 to December 13 on the Main Stage of the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts.

Adapted by James Goode from the original Lux Radio Broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life, and directed by DeSales chair of theatre Dennis Razze, this clever take on a Christmas classic is set in a 1940s radio studio decked for the holidays where stage managers, technicians, and actors gather to present the timeless tale of George Bailey, the hardworking everyman who once had big dreams, as he comes face to face with his guardian angel Clarence. “This is going to be a delightful evening of theatre which is sure to lift your Christmas spirits,” says Razze. “A cast of 30 actors—including four very talented children—tell the story of George Bailey and Clarence the Angel Second Class in a way that is completely fresh and original.”

With sound effects, specialty acts, music, local commercials, and audience participation, Merry Christmas, George Bailey is a clever and theatrical spin on a Christmas classic—the perfect family-friendly holiday treat recommended for ages 6 and older.
