In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The story is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation not only celebrates the spirit of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded. A beautiful and melodic score has been added to James W. Rodgers' faithful and popular adaptation. Capturing both the spirit and the period of the original film, the musical selections offer a wide variety of delightful and heartwarming melodies. All the great characters are here: George ("Something Important"), Mary ("Quiet Wishes: Simple Dreams"), Clarence ("I Want to Fly"), Violet ("I Love to Dance"), Uncle Billy and Aunt Tilly ("Whoops! Another Year's Gone By") and Potter ("Easy Living"); 22 songs in all. Solos, duets, ensembles and full chorus numbers all have pleasing and catchy melodies within comfortable vocal ranges.

Be prepared with 16 bars of a Broadway Style song. Bring sheet music with piano accompaniment or a backing track. NO Acapella or "Happy Birthday" will be allowed. An accompanist will be provided.
