It’s a Wonderful Life, set to soaring songs from the '20s, '30s, and '40s, is a timeless holiday classic. With a little help from his guardian angel, George Bailey is brought back from despair on Christmas Eve to see how he has truly touched all the people in his life.
Travel with us to Bedford Falls for a joyous journey that will have you checking for Zuzu’s petals in your own pockets and make you believe that every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings. This heartwarming holiday story is one you’ll want to share with family and loved ones.
