Welcome to Bedford Falls... small-town America of a bygone age

George Bailey is a good man from a good family; he always puts himself last and his big plans to travel the world always seem to be on hold – but on the night of Christmas Eve his world seems to be falling apart and he finds himself on the town bridge staring in to the freezing water.  When a decent man is in a desperate state and the people of the town are sending their prayers for his safe return, surely only a guardian angel can save the day?

This Christmas family classic is brought to the stage by Blue Apple Theatre with warmth, charm and lots of heart. Come with us as George gets the a unique opportunity - to see what his hometown would have been like had he never been born – but be prepared, as it’s not a pretty sight.

A story about how we live together or fall apart, ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ explores how the power of a hundred small positive choices can make all our lives richer – and there will of course be snow, angels, confetti and church bells too. Spend a December evening with Blue Apple and we’ll send you home with joy in your heart, a smile on your lips and Auld Lang Syne ringing in your ears – what better way to prepare for Christmas?
