The beloved holiday film is a new, classic musical!
Patrick Street Productions presents a musical adaptation of the beloved holiday classic, It’s A Wonderful Life, a musical adaptation by Peter Jorgensen based on the screenplay by Frank Capra, and arrangement and orchestrations by Nico Rhodes.
This heart-warming show breathes musical life into the familiar story while it retains its warmth and humour featuring musical standards. This new adaptation is now a wonderful holiday musical for the whole family!
Clarence, the Angel (Greg Armstrong-Morris), has been struggling for over 200 years to get his wings when he’s given the task of saving George Bailey (Nick Fontaine), a small- town owner of the Bailey Building and Loan who, on Christmas Eve, considers throwing away his life. When Clarence shows him what the world would be like without him, George finally realizes just how wonderful life truly is.
Featuring classic musical standards like Nice Work if You Can Get It (George & Ira Gershwin), One Life to Live (Kurt Weill), and Keep the Home Fires Burning (Ivor Novello), as well as traditional holiday carols, It’s A Wonderful Life reminds us, through story and song, just how wonderful life really is – and that, as Clarence tells George, “No man is a failure who has friends.”
Starring Nick Fontaine, Erin Palm, Jim Hibbard & Greg Armstrong-Morris as Clarence, the Angel; Also featuring Stephen Aberle, Oakley Arksey, Will Byassee, Andrew Cohen, Justin Lapeña, Vanessa Merenda, Kamyar Pazandeh, Gordon Roberts, Sayer Roberts, Ali Watson, & Colleen Winton
