Two local theater companies are performing versions of the holiday favorite “It’s a Wonderful Life” in the coming weeks.
“It’s a Wonderful Life” takes place in the fictional town of Bedford Falls shortly after World War II. The original film starred James Stewart as George Bailey, a man whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve gets the attention of guardian angel Clarence Oddbody, sent to help him in his hour of need.
