It’s A Wonderful Life

Based on the beloved 1946 film (which happens to be one of my favorite holiday movies,) faithfully follows George Bailey’s life from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond. This adaptation breathes musical life into a familiar story while maintaining the story that I love. Tickets for both afternoon and evening showings are available for purchase online. Hope to see you there!

Inspired by the book The Fox and The Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith, this story of nature and friendship will come to life through dance and acrobatics. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased online, select showings will offer a sensory-friendly experience. Tickets are limited, you don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind production.
