It’s A Wonderful Life adapted for the stage by James W. Rodgers, and based on the film by Frank Capra, is Denton Community Theatre’s Christmas at the Campus presentation for 2012.
In this heartwarming holiday favorite, George Bailey spends his life sacrificing his dreams to run a small Savings and Loan for the good of his hometown, Bedford Falls. One Christmas Eve, however, he is broken and distraught over misplacing a large amount of money and is sure to lose everything to the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter. He is ready to end it all until his guardian angel; Clarence, literally falls to earth to help him see what would have happened to all the people that he cares about had he never been born.
Director John Evarts has a large cast of Denton Community Theatre veterans and newcomers of all ages to bring Bedford Falls to the Denton stage. A truly family event, bring the kids and the grandparents to celebrate the inspiring story that reminds us everyone is important and miracles can happen to the most unlikely of people. How better to get into the holiday spirit?
