The Sunrise Players of Sunrise Church will present the musical “A Wonderful Life."
The production is a 1986 musical with a book and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Joe Raposo. Based on the classic Frank Capra film “It's a Wonderful Life” starring James Stewart, the story closely follows the original plot, set in 1945, telling the story of a suicidal man whose guardian angel reveals to him how different the world and everyone whose life he has touched would be had he never been born.
The film was, in turn, based on a 1938 short story by Philip Van Doren Stern called “The Greatest Gift”.
This wonderful musical is directed by the same directing and staging teams as previous Sunrise Players productions of “Willy Wonka,” “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “Charlie Brown’s Christmas,” “White Christmas,” “Peter Pan,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” and many more over the past ten years.
