What's the show about?
The play follows the story 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 descent 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. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.
A Note from Director Sarah Schostack
"The holiday season is about reflection and gratitude: for the people around us and the intangible good we give to each other’s lives. It’s a Wonderful Life teaches us this core value as it applies not just to Christmas but also in the entirety of our lives. It shows us our worth from the moment we are born to the moment we watch it, through the heart, soul, and good of George Bailey, with Clarence’s help, of course. Thankfully, we will never have to live in a world without George Bailey and his lesson."
