It’s A Wonderful Life This Christmas Season
While I am very familiar with the age-old story of It’s a Wonderful Life – the Frank Capra-directed classic Christmas tale starring James Stewart – I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that it’s a movie I’ve never actually seen. Now in its fourth year on the Arts Club Theatre stage, this heartwarming holiday story has been once again brought to life with magic and wonder on Granville Island.

George Bailey is a generous man who grew up with worldwide dreams and a desire to do something “important” with his life. When family obligations, business, children, marriage and financial devastation catch up with George, his overwhelming circumstances lead him to believe that he has only one choice.
As the snow falls on that harrowing Christmas Eve in Bedford Falls, George receives a visit from his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody (played by the charmingly sweet Bernard Cuffling). From there Clarence shows George the kind of life that he never dreamed of – and never wants to see again.
Featuring exuberant performances by some of Vancouver’s most enigmatic performance artists, It’s A Wonderful Life is a treat that will both delight and warm your soul. Running now until January 2, 2011, it’s a show that you’ll not want to miss.
Until December 6th, you have a chance to win tickets to the Friday, December 10, 2010 performance! Visit Miss604.com to enter.
