Wenatchee

Old Time Radio Show
When: Tuesday, December 19, 2023 | 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: Numerica Performing Arts Center

See the performance LIVE or listen to it on KPQ on December 19 & rebroadcast on December 24

Directed by Dani Schafer-Cloke and Foley Director James Wallace

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.

What is an Old Time Radio Show?

Before TV took over, radio was one of the world’s main sources of entertainment. Apart from news, commercials, and music, it also broadcast shows: dramas, mysteries, comedies, and more. Families in the 1920s through to the 1960s gathered around to listen to what we now call old-time radio shows. Stories were brought to life live on the radio with voice actors and foley artists.

NOTE: Attendees must be 5+ years old to attend
