The Encore’s original musical version of It’s a Wonderful Life is based on the classic holiday film of the same name starring Jimmy Stewart. The tale takes place in Bedford Falls, New York, 1946, and George Bailey, who has long considered himself a failure, faces financial ruin and arrest and is doubting his own self worth. But, high above Bedford Falls an eternally bumbling Angel, Clarence Oddbody, is sent to help George out. After 200 years Clarence has yet to earn his wings. But before he can do that, Clarence is given a crash course on George's life, and the multitude of selfless acts he has performed.
Admission to It's a Wonderful Life is $28/Adults, $25/Seniors (55+) and Youths (17 & under). Tickets may be purchased online at theencoretheatre.org/Encore/Tickets or by calling 734-268-6200.
