Most theatergoers know the story of the 1946 Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life — George Bailey learns how well he’s loved, an angel gets his wings — but they may not have seen a rendition like this one. University of Vermont Department of Theatre and Dance artist-in-residence Johann Robert Wood brings a distinctly Black and queer vision to directing It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play for a joyful, diverse update. Voguing dancers, a live jazz combo and foley artists bring the story to life in sound and color.

Price: $10-22.
