An all-time seasonal favorite, "It's a Wonderful Life" was twice adapted for radio in 1947, first on Lux Radio Theater (March 10) and then on the Screen Guild Theater (December29), and on March 15, 1951. James Stewart and Donna Reed reprised their roles for all three radio productions. Stewart also starred in the May 8, 1949 radio adaptation presented on the Screen Directors Playhouse.
Ron Steelman's CRRS production of his original
radio play, "The Dreamer," garnered rave reviews from the judges at the Atlanta Fringe Audio Festival.

Donating $20 (or more!) on our support page.
PREMISE - I love the premise! The premise kept me engaged the entire time and with the entrance of each new character being so distinct, it left me wondering each time: "Could this be the dreamer?"
PLOT - A fun, charming romp with old-time radio sensibility, an engaging plot, and laugh-out-loud lines!
DIALOGUE - The dialogue is strong and engaging and I jotted down several lines that made me laugh out loud (“Oh my applesauce!”, “Oh look, they’re throwing something back at me through the window.”).
VOICES - The voice work fits the characters to a tee and the entire show is well mixed, with SFX and music never overwhelming the dialogue.
MUSIC - The music interludes signifying major scene changes were a great move! It signified the type of mood the show was going for. The actors gave very stylized performances that I was very into.
STYLE - A really nice homage to the style and techniques of the Golden Age of radio.
