'It's a Wonderful Life' retold

BURBANK - "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" opens Dec. 2 for a two-week run at the Missing Piece Theatre in Burbank.In this retelling of the classic holiday movie, the show takes place at KAWL, a struggling 1940s radio station that good-hearted owner Michael Anderson is barely keeping alive. He calls on some good friends (with big personalities) and some less-than-professional station employees to offer up the touching masterpiece in what might sadly be the stations' last live show. But it's the holidays, a time when miracles can happen... "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" will be presented Dec. 2-17 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20, or "pay what you want" with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy. Tickets can be purchased online at theatreunleashed.com. The Missing Piece Theatre is at 2811 W. Magnolia Blvd.
