It's A Wonderful Life

Adapted by Doug Rand

Directed by Dawn Sniadak-Yamokoski


Independence Community Theatre is currently presenting It's A Wonderful Life, a family-oriented experience just in time for the holidays. This stage adaptation of the classic film is not only a joyful Christmas tale -- it's the gorgeous love story of George and Mary Bailey, a vivid portrait of the Greatest Generation, a descent into the darkest hour of a man trapped by circumstance, and a powerful meditation on what makes a meaningful life.
