Inspired by the American classic film, this production is performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a live studio audience.  Back before the internet, cell phones and television were popular yet, families gathered around the radio for their entertainment. They didn’t watch shows; they listened to them, mostly.  Come see 13 actors perform over 40 different character voices in this show that brings Frank Capra’s iconic film to the stage.  Set in a radio station, complete with sound effects creatively performed on stage with fun commercial breaks too. This play captures all the warmth and magic of Christmas when a loving, frustrated business man views what life would be like for his family, friends and community if he had never been born. 2 Acts               Approx. 2hrs            Drama/Comedy

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
