Photo Flash: First Look at Aurora Theatre's THIS WONDERFUL LIFE
Adding to the festive merriment at Aurora Theatre this holiday season, a hilariously touching stage adaptation of a holiday classic, This Wonderful Life will join the line-up from November 24 - December 23. The one-man show, starring Jeremy Aggers, will remind audiences of all ages of the fulfilling power of the heart.
"It's always a pleasure - and a welcome challenge - to bring a holiday tradition like this classic story to life on the stage," said Justin Anderson, Director. "Audiences can expect all the familiar, feel-good elements they know and love from the film presented in an inventive and comedic way. Jeremy Aggers creates the most mesmerizing embodiment, both vocally and physically, of all the characters in Bedford Falls. His portrayal will leave hearts full - and hopefully restored - with the spirit of the season."
Steve Murray's stage adaptation of one of the most popular and heartwarming films ever made follows the story of the iconic George Bailey as he reflects on his life journey with the help of his guardian angel, Clarence. The lessons he learns along the way are both hilarious and heartfelt, revealing that it takes much more than money to be the richest man in town. Atlanta's own Jeremy Aggers, whom audiences will recognize from Aurora's productions of Singles in Agriculture and Hands on a Hardbody, will inhabit all of the well-loved characters, including George Bailey, Clarence, Mr. Potter, Uncle Billy, Mary, Mr. Gower and even Zuzu. Aurora Theatre's own Justin Anderson will direct this classic tale.
