It’s a Wonderful Life
December 15-16, 2019
West Coast Players in Clearwater, FL will host Palm Harbor University High School’s production of Rodgers’ It’s a Wonderful Life, presented in special arrangement by Dramatic Publishing and based on the movie by Frank Capra.
In our American culture, It’s a Wonderful Life has become as familiar as Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and is a natural for a stage adaptation. The saga follows the life of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been squashed by family obligation and civic duty. His guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that this 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.
$21 / $15 for students / $19 for groups of 10 or more
Saturday at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm
