As much a part of Christmas as snow angels and Santa Claus, the heartwarming story of George Bailey returns to hail the holiday season in an innovative theatrical production staged in the style of a live 1940s-style radio broadcast, complete with sound effects, music, and commercials. Cheers ring out through the halls of the Beverly Arts Center as children and adults delight in this retelling of Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, which, through the talents of six professional actors, brings dozens of characters to the stage to act out the broadcaster’s narrative and scold him for slipping into recitations of outdated sports scores.

As the perennially selfless George runs into financial difficulty and contemplates jumping off a bridge on Christmas Eve, his guardian angel appears to help him rediscover the joy of being alive through visions of a desolate world where Frosty the Snowman never existed. The Beverly Arts Center’s 400-seat Main Stage Theater intimately illuminates the proceedings and recommends that audience members seated stage-side wear ponchos in case George accidentally slips into the icy pool of water in the orchestra.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Beverly Arts Center

Art. Education. Community. Non-Profit. These four words succinctly sum up the mission of Beverly Art Center, a cultural hub in the historic Beverly Hills, Morgan Park neighborhood. The heart of the member-supported center is the 400-seat Main Stage theater, which hosts plays, dance recitals, and concerts. But the venue is equally dedicated to education, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in ceramics and film classes at the School of the Arts or attend literary events with actual authors instead of just their dust jacket photos. A spacious art gallery hosts rotating exhibitions of contemporary works by both national and regional artists.
