It’s a Wonderful Life, at the Tacoma Little theater

Posted: December 2nd, 2013

“It’s a Wonderful Life,” the famous Christmas play, will be on stage at  the Tacoma Little Theatre. This production opened on November 29th, and runs through December 23rd.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is directed by Frank Capra. An angel helps a frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he never existed. Chris Serface, managing artistic director for the Tacoma Little Theater, explained the actors of the play, “This production pulls together adults and children from Seattle all the way down to Olympia.  These are local community members who are actors. For some it is what they do with their spare time as an extracurricular activity, for others it is how they spend their retirement time, and for some it is them trying to make a living by breaking into acting.  We have all levels of individuals in this production.  For some it is their first experience, for others it marks their return to stage after a number for years.”

Tickets to the show range from $15 to $22, and group rates are available. An interesting approach to ticket sales is FLEX pass which is good for six performances for $120.00! This production is presented in two acts with a 15 minute intermission.  The approximate run time is two hours and 15 minutes.

“This is one of those stories that everyone has grown up with.  It’s become such a part of our culture that I know I’m excited to see it come to life in front of me on stage vs. crowding around the TV.  The fact that this is a live version of the story and doesn’t miss any of the heart of the film is wonderful.  We truly believe that we are transported to Bedford Falls, NY,” Chris stated.

Chris feels the best thing about the play is the talent on stage. Chris commented: “This cast has amazed me from the first day I saw them audition.  Watching the friendships form and seeing them translate to stage has been a wonderful process.  Families have found [this play] endearing for years.  It’s a great way for the generations in a family to celebrate together and feel good about the holiday season.”

“Teacher says, every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!”
