This Wonderful Life

Michigan Premiere!
By Steve Murray
November 27 – December 20, 2009

A beloved American film classic, It’s A Wonderful Life, comes to the stage in this one-man tour de force that delivers a witty and moving story that is sure to capture your heart and captivate your spirit. There’s the family man George Bailey; evil and miserly Mr. Potter; Clarence, the dotty angel in waiting; devoted Mary, and Zuzu with her petals. But we can’t forget the image of a man standing alone on a bridge on Christmas Eve…the story of how he got there, and how he found his way back home. This Wonderful Life reminds us of the power of perspective, friendship and family. Superbly adapted from the most irresistible and entertaining “what if” story of all time. A holiday experience for the whole family.

Directed by Tony Caselli. Featuring John Lepard.
