It's A Wonderful Life, the musical

Book and Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick

Music by Joe Raposo

Adapted from the Frank Capra film "It's A Wonderful Life"

A Terrific Musical with a Lot of Heart and Good-Natured Optimism!

Frank Capra's film classic has been brought to vibrant theatrical life. Set in 1945, it tells the story of George Bailey, an average Joe who spends a lifetime sacrificing his own ambitions for the sake of others ÷ continually setting aside his own dreams in order to keep his late father's building and loan business afloat. When a greedy banker manufactures a scandal that threatens to send him to jail, George is crushed and contemplates suicide. Sent to help him in his hour of need, a guardian angel reveals to him how different the world and everyone whose life he has touched would be had he never been born. An uplifting chronicle of the extraordinary lives of ordinary folk, A WONDERFUL LIFE exhilarates the mind and heart as it celebrates the innate goodness in us all.

Warm & wholesome entertainment for the whole family!
