Joe Landry's holiday favorite puts Frank Capra's film classic It's a Wonderful Life on stage as a 1940s radio broadcast. It's December 24, 1946, in Studio A at WSTG Radio, and a cast of actors goes live on-air portraying all the memorable characters -- from down-on-his-luck do-gooder George Bailey, who's considering ending his life one desperate Christmas Eve, to the blundering guardian angel sent to Earth to show George what the world would have been like without him. Treat the whole family to San Jose Stage Company's presentation of this beloved story. Learn More

This show is a collection of dance numbers... A couple of them were very "dark", and I didn't personally care for them. Some were done by the Yuerba Buena High School kids, so not what I expected from a professional company. However, I did like 40% of the show when the professional dancers did some very beautiful dance numbers...
Following the Saturday show, audience members are invited to a post-performance reception at which they can meet the dancers and artists.
About the Ticket Supplier: Margaret Wingrove Dance Company
Founded in 1981, the critically-acclaimed Margaret Wingrove Dance Company remains San Jose's longest-standing modern dance company. Blending both modern and ballet techniques with high energy and physicality, the company's style is fluid enough to allow for bold experimentation in a wide range of repetoire of over 80 choreographic works.
The company is dedicated to the innovation and presentation of emotionally compelling and dynamically driven dance. It performs not only works of its founder and artistic director, Margaret Wingrove, but also showcases the works of emerging choreographers and noted guest artists. This mission to present young, promising dancers and choreographers has been very much a company mainstay since its founding.
