"It's a Wonderful Life" has become a holiday staple for many families. So what better way to kick off the season than to see this classic fave in a whole new way -- live on stage! This show-within-a-show takes place on December 24, 1946 in Studio A at WBFR Radio, where a cast of six actors is preparing to present "It's a Wonderful Life" live to the listening audience. With the help of a sound-effects artist, the ensemble reenacts the beloved story of George Bailey, a young man who's given up on his dreams and stands on a bridge, ready to end it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. The story's message is profound and remains relevant for today's audiences. See it at Oil Lamp Theater in Glenview, and stay for cookies and hot chocolate after each show! [less-]

Before Scrooge, author Charles Dickens had his own ghosts to contend with. "A Dickens Carol" uses real events to reimagine the story of Scrooge from Dickens' point of view. With his marriage and finances in trouble in 1840s London, Dickens has become bitter toward life itself, a bit like the curmudgeonly character he has yet to create. But on a cold Christmas eve, a horrible train crash plunges him into the icy Kent river. Stuck in a carriage slowly sinking into the water, three spirits lead Dickens on a journey through his past, present and future. The journey transforms his life and inspires him to write his most celebrated work ever. The carol behind the carol, this all-new twist on a family ghost story at Oak Park's Madison Street Theatre promises to melt the heart of the scroogiest Scrooge out there. [less-]
