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

It’s a Wonderful Life is a tale that most people can relate to in some aspect. Everyone has had that moment where something didn’t go exactly right or you needed help and someone stepped in to help you. Those moments are represented very well in It’s A Wonderful Life. It makes it realistic even though not everyone will know their angel. 

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

My favorite character is Mary Hatch. She has a heart as big as her husband and when she sees him struggle she knows that it’s now her time to help him. I love that she steps in to help when others are struggling to find the solution. When she helps keep the Building and Loan open by using the money for her honeymoon you see that she cares more about George than he even knows. 

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

I am looking forward to working with the children in this show. I think they will all do marvelous work and I can’t wait to see some of them in their theatric debut. I also am looking forward to working with Kearney! I’ve always seen her behind the scenes and to see her onstage will be amazing!

I am making my Stage Manager debut with this show. It’s something that I’ve always been in awe of and having the chance to be the SM is something I am very grateful for. I am also excited to bring sound effects to life. It’s not everyday that you get to slam doors and walk in cornflakes!

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

I think that the family element of It’s a Wonderful Life is what makes the story so endearing. I think Mary and the children really ground George and give him a heart that he wouldn’t otherwise have. I think George’s family makes his story much more relatable and lovable.

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

Everyone loves George and Mary and Zuzu, but I’m personally very fond of Uncle Billy. I think his heart is a little too big and his brain is a little too small and it makes him a different kind of lovable.
