IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE AT PLT!
Come see one of the most magical American Christmas stories ever told, as Pensacola Little Theatre's Mainstage Series presents "It's A Wonderful Life" December 13-15 and 19-22.
In the theatre, we create great stories, so ring in the holiday season with a Christmas classic brought to life on stage this December! The story is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that this has been, after all, a wonderful life.
Based on the 1947 movie, starring Jimmy Stewart, director Jerry Ahillen is excited to bring this popular show back to the PLT stage. Ahillen has a talented cast filled with PLT veterans and newcomers. A. Mark Palmer is a fantastic George Bailey and really brings this passionate character to life. The adorable Bailey children bring a smile to your face and the beloved Clarence Odbody, played by Scott W. Haring, is the guardian angel you always envisioned for yourself.
It's A Wonderful Life will be performed December 13-15 and 19-22, 2013. Show times are Thursday, Friday's and Saturday's at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday's at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $14-$30 and Thursday the 19th is half off all ticket prices.
