Its a Wonderful Life

Adapted from Frank Capra’s 1946 classic movie.

Saturday 4th December to Saturday 11th December

On Christmas Eve 1945, in Bedford Falls, New York, 38-year-old George Bailey contemplates suicide. The prayers of his family and friends reach heaven, where Angel 2nd class Clarence Odbody is assigned to save George, to earn his wings. Clarence shows George Life in Bedford Falls had he not been born… Will it be enough to convince George that his life made a difference to the people of Bedford falls?

If you enjoyed last years production of A Christmas Carol, then you will love the stage version of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic Christmas Story .

Tickets are priced at £10.00 and go on general sale approximately 3 weeks prior to each show.
