Lyric Arts' IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE Sells Out
The Lyric Arts holiday show It's a Wonderful Life has sold out for the remainder of its run. The show's opening night was November 15th, and it opened to big crowds and full seats. Seats sold out early for this show, and many attendees have given it rave reviews.
One audience member wrote via email, "I just had to write you guys a note, we were at the performance last night for It's a Wonderful Life and my husband and I loved it. The performance was wonderful. One of my favorite Christmas movies and you made it even better. George Bailey had me believing he was Jimmy Stewart. Kudos to the whole cast and thanks for a wonderful evening. Merry Christmas!"
The classic play opens on Christmas Eve, with George Bailey wondering if the city of Bedford Falls and its citizens would be better off had he never existed. His guardian angel appears and helps him realize how the seemingly small actions of one man can cause tremendous change in the lives of those he's touched. This timeless tale is a reminder of how interconnected we are as humans, and how truly wonderful life can be.
The excitement of having a sold-out show has not detracted attention from the next show coming to the Lyric Arts stage. Picnic, a drama set in summer in a small Kansas town, will open on January 10th and run through the 26th. The Pulitzer Prize winning drama will incorporate a realistic set, and will be directed by Lyric Arts Resident Director Scott Ford.
