Nov 29 - Dec 29: THIS WONDERFUL LIFE
THIS WONDERFUL LIFE
an exhilarating one-man version of the beloved Christmas Classic
November 29 - December 29
It is Christmas Eve in a wartime New England town. Despairing over a life of dreams deferred, George Bailey sets out to throw himself from a bridge – until a dotty angel-in-waiting shows him what might have been had he never lived at all. A single actor stunningly recreates over two dozen memorable characters in this imaginative tour-de-force.
Pacific Theatre is delighted to join you in your Christmas festivities with this quintessential holiday show. The heartwarming drama was first brought to the silver screen in 1946, and has seen multiple incarnations in its 61 years. The Canadian premiere of this one-man revivification stars Dan Amos (The Quarrel, A Bright Particular Star) as the entire cast of over two dozen unforgettable characters.
Ever-faithful to the script, playwright Steve Murray brings us all the show’s beloved or unforgettable characters, including George Bailey, Mister Potter, Clarence, and little Zuzu, who reminds us all that every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.
Directed by Morris Ertman, with scenery and lighting design by Kevin McAllister, and sound design by Paul Moniz de Sá. At turns hilarious, touching, and even dark, This Wonderful Life is a holiday show not to be missed!
