It’s A Wonderful Life

from the film by Frank Capra

and the story by Philip Van Doren Stern

adapted for the stage by James W. Rodgers

a drama directed by Andrea Fairchild and Jeff Hensley

Shows:  Friday & Saturday, December 2, 3, 9, & 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 4 & 11, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.

The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him — by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born — that his has been, after all, a wonderful life.

The classic holiday movie brought to stage. The script written by James W. Rodgers faithfully captures the spirit of the book and movie. It’s the story of George Bailey who is given a rare gift by his guardian angel on Christmas eve – he gets to see what the world would be like if he had never been born.
