For holidays, CSF tunes in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’
For its annual holiday production, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival (CSF) presents a life-affirming look into a bygone era with “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry.”

For the play, five actors gather in a 1940s radio studio to retell the story from Frank Capra’s classic film in front of a live studio audience. Complete with light-up applause signs, sound effects and multiple voices for each actor, this show is as entertaining as it is heartwarming. Directed by Kate Berry, the production features new and familiar faces from the CSF resident company.

Performances begin Dec. 2 and continue through Dec. 24 at the University Theatre Building on the CU-Boulder campus. A preview performance is set for Dec. 1. The Dec. 8 performance is a fundraiser for Community Food Share, with half of proceeds going directly to the food bank for Boulder and Broomfield counties.
