It's a Wonderful Life, A Radio Play

PTK presents IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, A RADIO PLAY! This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast!

November 17 and 18 at 7.30 p.m.


With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds one fateful Christmas Eve.

REVIEWS: "One of the best holiday shows around. This is a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption." Chicago Sun-Times
"A fresh theatrical context that creates just the right kind of retro warmth..." Chicago Tribune

Performances begin promptly at the scheduled times.  Those arriving late may not be seated.  Online tickets are available for purchase up to three hours prior to performance times. The Public Theatre of Kentucky's Box Office, located inside the Phoenix Theatre, opens for ticket sales one hour before performance times on show days only. If tickets are still available, they may be purchased at the door at this time.  

Late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager and may not be possible for some performances, especially if you are more than 10 minutes late.  If you arrive late, ushers will seat you at the earliest appropriate time during the performance, usually at the end of a scene.  Out of respect for the performers and other audience members, you will be asked to wait in the lobby with an usher until the appropriate seating break.  If you need to leave a performance early, we ask that you leave at a point in the performance when moving around would be a minimal disturbance to those around you, such as during applause. 

Disruptions are not tolerated.  If anyone disturbs the audience or interferes with the performance, the patron will be required to leave with no refund forthcoming.
