    It’s a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born and for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays. This loveable story is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. The auditions will be held on October 20 and 21 from 7-10 p.m.
