The Chocolate Church Arts Center turns the holiday spotlight on family entertainment with the staged production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” on the main stage.
It’s a Wonderful Life is a spectacular adaptation of Frank Capra's beloved 1946 film. The epic love story of George and Mary Bailey is a powerful Christmas tale, a portrait of the Greatest Generation and a descent into the darkest hour of a man trapped by circumstance, a powerful meditation on what makes a meaningful life.
George Bailey is played by Walter Gregg and the role of Mary is split between two actors, Phoebe Hansen and Letia Fowlie. This reinterpretation of the show’s traditional cast of characters has been extended to the essential role Angel 2nd Class Clarence Odbody, in this show being played by Sararose Willey and Olivia Cunningham.
The rest of the family is played by Nina Ryan (Zuzu Bailey), Kenneth Jensen (Tommy Bailey), Royal Kloberdans (Pete Bailey) and Racey Gregg (Janie Bailey). Rick Grover is Uncle Billy and Michael Millett plays the role of the notorious Henry Potter.
The show, directed by Wayne Otto, continues the tradition since 2013 that the Chocolate Church Arts Center produces a theatre show highlighting the Christmas spirit for all ages. It’s a Wonderful Life is an opportunity for families to enjoy a holiday experience together.
