John Hirsch Mainstage

“…manages to redouble the whimsy and nostalgic charm in a story already heaping with both.” – New Jersey Entertainment

After a lifetime of putting off his own plans to help others achieve their dreams, George Bailey becomes rooted in Bedford Falls. One Christmas evening, frustrated and on the brink of ruin, he contemplates the unthinkable. It’s up to a good-natured angel named Clarence to show George how his small life has made a big impact. With this fresh take on a classic story, our Mainstage is transformed into a live recording studio during the golden age of radio. Join our ‘studio audience’ for this wonderful story, complete with sound effects and old-time jingles.
