Come celebrate the season with a heartwarming new production of an American Christmas classic: It’s a Wonderful Life! at Rise.
The story is deeply familiar, yet evergreen: George Bailey of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, is ready to end it all on Christmas Eve – until his guardian angel shows him a vision of a world in which he’d never been born. This faithful adaptation brings all the classic characters to vivid new life: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the hissable Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. Directed with passion and warmth by MFA-level director Pat Hawkridge and featuring a multi-generational cast (including a real-life father and son as Clarence and George), this celebration of family, faith and community is the perfect way to experience the holidays with your entire family.
