It’s a Wonderful Life

Adapted for the stage by James W. Rogers; Based on the film by Frank Capra
Directed by Stephen Pick

About the Play
George Bailey’s dreams could take him far away from the small town of Bedford Falls, but his sense of duty has a way of keeping him tied down. As his ambitions float out of reach, George is finally left one Christmas Eve staring at what he views as a failed life. It will take divine intervention to give George the chance to see what the world would be like if he had never been born. Capra’s unforgettable characters are all present in the stage adaptation of this heart-warming, family-friendly tale.

Produced in cooperation with Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, IL.
