To celebrate the Christmas season, the Starr’s Mill drama department is presenting “It’s a Wonderful Life,” but with a brand-new twist.

The show still tells the story of George Bailey, a frustrated businessman during the holiday season in his small town of Bedford Falls. Bailey’s guardian angel then comes to visit him and gives him a view of what life would have been like if he never existed.

Performances will take place in the form of a radio show while still being performed live and on stage for audiences to view. Along with homemade sound effects and visible scripts, the show will feature the department’s own fictional radio show and host.

Performances will begin at 7 p.m. on December 2, 3, and 4 in Duke Auditorium. General admission tickets are $5 and can be purchased on the Starr’s Mill GoFan page.
