About It’s a Wonderful Life!

Floating Brick Theatre present their live stage version of It’s a Wonderful Life!

George Bailey has always dreamed of escaping his small hometown of Bedford Falls and travelling the world; however, he always puts others first. When a series of events threatens to take everything away from George, it becomes too much to bear and he considers ending it all. His guardian angel, Clarence shows him what his town would look like without him, and just how many lives he’s touched.

Age 8+

Sun 15 – Sat 21 Dec (not Fri 20), plus matinee on Sat 21.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for It’s a Wonderful Life! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
