It\'s a Wonderful Life (Rogers)
It's a Wonderful Life (Rogers)
Drama. Adapted for the stage by James W. Rodgers. Based on the film by Frank Capra.

Cast: 12m., 10w., 2 boys, 2 girls (doubling possible). In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga 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 himóby showing him what the world would have been like had he never been bornóthat 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. Unit set. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes.
