Fake Radio Proudly Presents...

Lights Up at The Vault: Fake Radio Presents “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Join us in welcoming Fake Radio back to The Vault Theater for this ongoing holiday tradition!

“Every holiday season for twenty years (except during COVID!) we’ve recreated the 1947 CBS radio broadcast of Lux Radio Theater’s “It’s a Wonderful Life”… including all of its original commercials.

This year, we’re excited to bring back our favorite tradition with the FABULOUS Mindy Sterling!

Featuring top talent from both Portland and Los Angeles, Fake Radio will re-enact this hit radio show the old-fashioned way: dressed in period clothing and standing with scripts in hand in front of old microphones. Sound and music effects will make you feel like you’re watching a live radio recording from the 1940s. We’ll even re-create the old commercials! Just be ready for the cast to occasionally go off-script!

Since 1999, the cast of Fake Radio has produced more than 100 versions of classic radio hits from the 1940s & 1950s with their signature use of both scripted and improvised material.”

*Tickets are available on a sliding scale in $5 increments – please select the ticket price that best fits your budget. Theatre chairs will be grouped based on party size indicated at the time of ticket purchase.

Vaccine card and identification, or proof of negative COVID test taken within 72 hours prior to the event are required. Masks must be worn inside of the building.

Lights Up at The Vault is generously sponsored by the Hillsboro Hops.


Join Bag&Baggage in helping to feed our communities by bringing food donations to The Vault when you come to see the show!

Beaverton Food Project is a small, community-run network of free fridges and pantries that provide 24/7 access to food and groceries for anyone who stops by on a “take what you want, leave what you can” basis. There are currently 4 fridges and 8 pantries that span from the outer edge of Beaverton to Main Street in Hillsboro! Anyone can drop off or pick up at any of the 12 locations at any time, but this winter BFP is partnering with Bag&Baggage for extra support to keep pantries stocked with plenty of cans, dry goods, and other non-perishables. Some recommended items include:

– Dry rice, pasta, beans, lentils

– Canned beans, tomatoes, soups, or other vegetables

– Baking flour and box mixes for cakes and breads

If you choose to make your own contributions to a fridge or pantry, please follow our community agreements:

  1. Take what you want, leave what you can!
  2. Do your best to touch only what you are going to take.
  3. Sanitize your hands before opening the fridge.
  4. Only donate food that has not expired or been opened.
  5. Please do not donate alcohol or drugs.
  6. Do your best to keep surrounding areas clean and organized, for our generous hosts!
  7. Keep meat and produce separate in the fridge and freezer to avoid cross-contamination (not all fridges have freezers).
  8. Protocols for donating pre-made meals:- Use clean and sealed containers with labels:- What is it?

    – Where is it coming from?

    – Ingredients/allergens?

    – When was it prepared?
