This timeless tale about an angel being sent from heaven to help a desperately frustrated George Bailey is being presented by Theatre...Not a Dying Art (T...NADA). This angel shows George what life would have been like if he had never existed. This adaptation of It's A Wonderful Life is being presented on the stage-as an imaginative 1940's style radio-on-stage production by Tony Palermo.
