Okemos High School Theater, 2800 Jolly Road in Okemos
Tickets are available online at www.okemosdrama.net or at the door ($5 Students and Senior Citizens, $10 Adults).
In our American culture “It's a Wonderful Life” has become almost as familiar as Dickens' “A Christmas Carol.” Okemos High School presents “It’s A Wonderful Life”, a play based on the film by John Capra and adapted by James W. Rogers. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: 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 descent 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. With 60 Okemos High School students in the cast and crew, the show is directed by Mr. Chad DeKatch with Technical Director Mr. Brian Ugorowski.
