Come celebrate the holidays with Oil Lamp Theater and be whisked back to Bedford Falls and that magical time of traditional America, mom and apple pie. Oil Lamp is excited to offer again the timeless classic, It's a Wonderful Life. In this theater adaptation of the famous Capra movie starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, the intimate space of Oil Lamp Theater is transformed into the 1940s radio studio WBFR, and you join the studio audience in a live recording of the holiday classic.

Executive and Artistic Director Keith Gerth is excited to bring back this classic to the Oil Lamp stage for the holiday season. This story reflects so beautifully the heroic American hero in the character of George Bailey as he struggles with greed and adversity. Even today, the extreme division of wealth in our country persists, and we all want to believe that those core values of honest work and fairness will once again win out over injustice and that the community will come together, provide support to each other and further the continuing dream.

The performance runs one hour and forty-five minutes including intermission.


The Odd Couple by Neil Simon

Runs from January 8th through February 22nd

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Felix ultimately decides to room together with Oscar with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
