It's a Wonderful Life

Sunday, December 8, 2013 - 8:00pm

Presented By:
Mansfield Playhouse

95 E Third St
Mansfield, OH 44902

It's a Wonderful Life
Based on the Film by Frank Capra
Adapted for the Stage by William J. Springer
Directed by Steve Arnold

This beloved Christmas classic follows George Bailey as his guardian angel, Clarence, shows him all the lives he touched and how his community would be very different if he hadn’t been born. Every well known character comes to life, from the evil Mr. Potter to the delightfully bumbling Uncle Billy and little Zuzu.
Share this with your family and make some Christmas memories of your own.

Auditions for It's a Wonderful Life will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 8th and 9th, at 7:00 pm at the Mansfield Playhouse. Roles are available for twelve men and ten women, of ages ranging from late teens to 60s, as well as for two young boys and two young girls. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, which will be provided. The actual show will run December 6-8 and 13-15.
