“Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.” George Bailey (Bob Frazer) performs countless good deeds for friends and townsfolk in Bedford Falls, yet all that seems to count for naught when he faces financial adversity…and Mr. Potter (Alec Willows). At George’s most woeful moment, his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody (Bernard Cuffling), swoops in to remind him that faith, hope, and family make life truly wonderful.

Returning for a fourth year by popular demand, It’s a Wonderful Life’s magical story and charming warmth remain, but new faces have joined the cast to bring this holiday heart-warmer to life. Lindsey Angell (Violet), Scott Bellis (Uncle Billy), Jennifer Clement (Tilly), Alex Diakun (Gowar), and John Murphy (Bert/Ed) join the company, along with two new rising stars—Kelk and Lucy Jeffery as young Harry Bailey and Zuzu.
