In our tradition of presenting a holiday classic, A WONDERFUL LIFE certainly fits the bill. George Bailey’s story remains a timeless tale of dreams, love, and the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.
Based on the classic Frank Capra film starring James Stewart, the story closely follows the original plot, set in 1945, telling the story of a suicidal man whose guardian angel reveals to him how different the world and everyone whose life he has touched would be had he never been born.

    A timeless tale. A haunting score. A stunning production. The mesmerizing PHANTOM is a sensation that enraptures with beautiful songs and characters more richly developed than in any other version, including the original novel. The story traces the obsession of the disfigured composer who falls in love with his protégé only to be undone by his passion. A theatrical rendition of Gaston Leroux’s classic novel.
