Theatre Bacchus presents
"It's a Wonderful Life"

by Philip Grecian
Directed by Lana Borsellino

Christmas

Based on the beloved Frank Capra film, this Holiday Tradition comes to life on stage in this charming adaptation.

 

Set just before, during and after World War II, Bedford Falls, NY comes to Niagara, where George Bailey, a dreamer who yearns to see the world, finds himself stuck in his small town running his father's Building and Loan company. When plans take even more unfortunate turns, George wishes he'd never been born. Cue Clarence the angel on assignment to finally get his wings, and George get his wish. He is shown what the world would be like if he had never been born.

 

This classic tale of redemption is based on the short story, "The Greatest Gift" by Philip Van Doren Stern, which ITSELF was loosely based on the beloved tale "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. 

 

Ranked number ONE on the list of America's most inspirational films of all time, this story is the perfect way to celebrate this Holiday Season with family and friends, because the main message of this uplifting tale is just how many lives we affect and impact in our journey on this earth.

Our production is suitable for all ages and takes place at the beautiful event space at Vieni Estates Winery.
