IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
by James W. Rodgers
Based on the film by Frank Capra & the story by Philip Van Doren Stern
(with special arrangement by Dramatic Publishing)

In our American culture, It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: 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 descent 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 his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, but it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.
