The American holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life makes its way to the stage of The Empty Space. It’s the moving story of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been diverted by family obligation and the trying times of the 1930s & 40s. When George believes his life is in ruins, his guardian angel Clarence appears to save him from despair and remind him that it is, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all of your favorite characters: George Bailey, Mary Hatch, Clarence the Angel, little Zuzu, Bert, Ernie, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. The incredibly popular It’s a Wonderful Life celebrates the power of friendship, family, and the holiday season.
The cast includes Nick Ono, Nancee Steiger, Jeremiah Heitman, Barbara Gagnon, Carlos Vera, Shaquille Hill, Eunice Hartsock, Tish Gamez, Bob Kempf, Lindsay Pearson, Joey Bedard, Maya Blackstone, Adam Fernandez, John Buford, Missy Lonsinger, Tina Hopper, Cerena Bradex, Juan Vargas, Matthew Brown, Everett Treadwell, Mackenzie Zander, Landon Antongiovani, and Lilah Antongiovani.
