Auditions (Calgary): “It’s a Wonderful Life” – Morpheus Theatre

It's a Wonderful Life, Morpheus Theatre

Auditions for IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE on Sept 6, 7, 8, & 10!

By Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, and Frank Capra
Directed by Jamie Eastgaard-Ross
At the Pumphouse Theatre, December 2 to 17, 2016

Based on the classic film by Frank Capra, It’s A Wonderful Life has been delighting audiences on the silver screen and in theatres since it debuted in 1943. December just doesn’t seem complete without a trip to Bedford Falls and the story of George Bailey, a man who believes in building community and helping your neighbours. When he becomes overwhelmed by one misfortune after another, George almost gives in to despair and then, on Christmas Eve, he meets a special angel on a mission to help George and receive his wings. The timeless message of hope, love and charity is especially warming on winter evenings with family and friends close-by. We hope you and yours will come celebrate this classic piece and this special time with us.
