Even in the Age of COVID, It’s Still a Wonderful Life

The 1946 iconic film It’s a Wonderful Life is based on a novel that, before it was purchased and brought to the silver screen, took the form of a 21-page Christmas card. But the tale’s metamorphosis didn’t stop there. In the 1980s the film was adapted to a musical, and in the late 1990s, it became a play that took the form of a 1940s radio show. The latter iteration, It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, is what 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa will be performing online this December. Shows will be available on-demand December 1–January 1. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at
