Drama Guild Presents “It’s A Wonderful Life”

The Drama Guild's production of "Chicago: High School Edition" will be held at the Bill and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center at Ocean City High School.

The Ocean City Drama Guild presents “It’s A Wonderful Life,” the classic holiday tale about George Bailey’s dreams of escape and adventure.

Each and every attempt to leave his sleepy little town of Bedford Falls is thwarted by Bailey’s duties and responsibilities.

Consumed by despair on Christmas Eve, Bailey’s guardian angel appears and grants George a wish.

The show is directed by Robert LeMaire and Ellen Byrne, and is presented by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company, of Woodstock, Illinois.

James W. Rodgers faithfully adapted the Frank Capra film (story by Philip Van Doren Stern) for the stage.

Show dates are Dec. 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 7 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Ocean City High School’s Bill and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center.
