It's a wonderful life 22.04.2016

Description

The Evolve Arts Adult Acting and Performance Class 2015/16 present a theatrical adaptation of the much loved Frank Capra screenplay of 'It's a wonderful life.'

George Bailey stands on a bridge contemplating ending his life.

Thankfully, Clarence a second class angel, who after 200 years has yet to earn his wings, is sent to the rescue!

George has always longed to travel but, whenever the opportunity has come around, has been stopped by one thing or another, namely preventing rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town and George's modest building and loan company, which was founded by his generous father. But on Christmas Eve, George's Aunt Tilly loses the business's $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money and hides it from Tilly.

George realises that he will be held responsible and sent to jail and the company will collapse, finally allowing Potter to take over the town.

Thinking that his wife Mary, his mother, and others he loves would be better off with him dead, he decides suicide is the only answer. But the prayers of his loved ones result in Clarence coming to earth to help George, with the promise of earning his wings.

He shows George what things would have been like if he had never been born. In a nightmarish vision in which the town, now Pottersville, has Henry Potter as it's ruling elite, those George loves are either dead, ruined, or miserable.

He realises that he has touched many people in a positive way and that his life has truly been a wonderful one!
