What do you think makes It’s a Wonderful Life such an endearing tale?

I think it’s a classic tale because of the message it sends and how everyone can relate to it. Everyone gets depressed at times but then we’re shown that people love and care about us. I think it’s a great Christmas story because that’s what the holiday season is all about, loving and caring for one another. 

Who is your favorite character from It’s A Wonderful Life?

Clarence. He’s just a guy trying to do his job but he’s so kind about it. I like how he doesn’t force George to change his way of thinking, but rather showing him and letting him decide on his own. He’s a really nice person and I think everyone has a soft spot for Clarence. 

Is there somebody in the cast you are looking forward to performing with?

Chris, who plays George Bailey. He’s been my teacher before but I’ve never seen him actually act in a show. I’m looking forward to see how he represents such a well-written character. I really am looking forward to working with everyone though! 

What makes you most excited about being a part of It’s A Wonderful Life?

I’m looking forward to the overall experience. Seeing old and new theater friends and sharing a Christmas story with everyone around town. Though specifically, I’m looking forward to working with Chris, my siblings, Gary, and the entire cast to preform a great timeless tale.
