In this stage adaptation of the Frank Capra film favorite, George Bailey finds himself at the end of his rope (and atop an icy bridge) one Christmas Eve. Consumed by the thought that the world would be better off if he'd never been born, George is considering ending his own life. That is, until a bumbling guardian angel by the name of Clarence comes down to Earth to show George the incredibly positive impact he's actually had on nearly everyone he knows. As synonymous with the Christmas season as eggnog, twinkling lights and piles of presents, It's a Wonderful Life is a timeless reminder of how precious life really is. Learn More

While the play itself was very interesting and dialogue heavy (Sorkin, of course), it was far too ambitious a project for this young community theater to pull off. I was impressed that they chose such a complex play. If you see a production from this group, go in remembering it is very amateurish. But they gave it their all and it's worth supporting a fledging group. The actors were clearly working very hard to do their best, but the director didn't seem to have any real theatrical training which greatly impacted the performers negatively. I've sadly seen high school productions better and more professionally directed. However, it's good to see community theater trying. You should also know that the chairs in the auditorium are old, broken-down, and very uncomfortable, and the venue doesn't seem to have any airconditioning so it was stuffy.
The show is recommended for those ages 14 and older, due to some adult language.
