In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descent on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.

Performances are Dec. 8 through Dec. 17 with Friday shows beginning at 7 p.m., Saturday shows beginning at 4 p.m. and Sunday matinees beginning at 2 p.m.

Cornerstone Playhouse is located 74 Main Street, Sussex Borough. All seats are reserved and are $18 each in advance and $20 at the door. You can purchase tickets online at www.mycptix.com or call 973 702-0687 for more information. Cornerstone Playhouse is a 501c3 non-profit and is the longest running community theatre in the greater Sussex County area.
