This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.


Oliver Reese JohnstonMale, 30-40. The true-to-heart ensemble performer, he’s played all the classics and has a reverence for every word he speaks.
Jack LaurentisMale, 30-35. An everyman--that part in all of us that is good. He’s genuine, passionate about everything he does, the underdog that everyone wants to win in the end, handsome, but a bit uncomfortable with his own physicality. Jake’s secret is that he’s never really acted in anything before… he’s just playing himself.
Sally ApplewhiteFemale, 20-25. Girl-next-door type, wholesome, smart, funny, talented, and absolutely beautiful. Sally has just arrived in town and here to make it or bust. Like Mary Hatch--once she falls in love, it’s forever.
Freddie FilmoreMale, 25-35. To voice and play multiple characters, full of charm, the emcee of the evening’s presentation, well-polished, self-assured with a bit of an ego.
Miss Lana SherwoodFemale, 20-25. Sassy and precocious, an experienced theater actress, has heard and seen it all. She won’t accept flowers unless there’s also jewelry in the box, but inside that outer hard core, there’s a heart of gold.
Miss Alice Jane KenworthyFemale, 30-64. Former heiress to the Whitney Oil fortune her family lost everything when the market crashed in 1929. Now a widow, she lives a modest life alone in a small flat with her cat Winston. The radio show and cast are her only family.
Harry "Jazzbo" HeywoodMale, 30-50. Great physicality, technical and detailed but with an exceptional sense of the ironies of life. A former minstrel show vaudevillian who left the circuit to perform in radio.
