The Edison High School Theatre Department will be putting on "It's A Wonderful Life" directed by Maureen O'Connor.
The play tells the story of George Bailey, a young man who is determined to get out of his hometown of Bedford Falls and conquer the world. When George's father suddenly passes away, George takes over his family business, gets married to a Bedford Falls girl named Mary, and ultimately never gets to live out his dreams. George becomes discouraged until his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody, shows him what life would be like if he had never been born. George realizes the impact that he has had on the people he loves and that he truly has a wonderful life.
“This production is a true "South Side" event since we have cast middle and elementary students in the roles of Young George, the Newspaper Girl, and as the Bailey children. It has been a joy to watch the high school students share their love of theatre with the younger students” said Ms. O'Connor, Director of the Edison High School Theatre Department.
“Since the show falls on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, and one of the characters (Harry Bailey) is a World War II War Hero, tickets will be free for all veterans. We will be selling red, white, and blue carnations, and all of the proceeds from them will be donated toward the Wounded Warrior Project” she added.
