Join us as we bring Frank Capra’s beloved American holiday treasure to our stage. Although he always had big dreams of leaving, George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls. In order to keep his father’s family business from falling into the hands of the greedy town miser, Henry Potter, George has settled for small town life with a wife and family. But on Christmas Eve, George’s Uncle Billy loses the business’s $8,000 bank deposit which gives Potter the opening he’s always wanted to weasel the business away from the Baileys. Facing prison and financial failure, George contemplates some dark thoughts as he ponders how much better off his wife, children, and the others he loves will be if he never existed. But the prayers of his loved ones result in the timely arrival of a gentle angel named Clarence who, by helping George, can finally earn his wings in the ultimate Holiday redemption story.
