It's A Wonderful Life ~ Thurs 29th June 2023 ~ Opening Night
George Bailey has given up his dreams for the good of his home town. Struggling to deal with life’s knockbacks, an event happens on Christmas Eve that topples his world into darkness. When an unexpected visitor appears, George goes on a journey that will change his life forever. Brought to the stage, the much-loved Hollywood classic (#1 on the American Film Institute’s list of most inspirational films) tells a story that is as fresh and entertaining as it was in 1946 and with its themes of financial insecurity, high unemployment and the lack of affordable housing, it also speaks to our world today.
Joining the Dots Theatre is excited to welcome back director Nicholas Papademetriou, and the team from Babette’s Feast (“wonderful, inventive theatre” – Sydney Arts Guide; “stunning and original” – Sydney Scoop). With a superlative cast, the cock-eyed optimism of It’s a Wonderful Life will warm your hearts (and your July) and remind us that how we deal with others is as good a way as any to start to change the world.
Pre-show Christmas-themed dinners are available on selected nights, catered by Dinner on the Table.
