Studio Tenn celebrates the holiday season by offering a warm and entertaining family show with its production of It’s a Wonderful Life. The play is based on Frank Capra’s beloved movie from 1946 (the movie itself is based on Philip Van Doren Stern’s short story, “The Greatest Gift,” published in 1945). Capra’s movie, starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, is one of the most loved films in American cinema, and it’s long been a staple among families during the Christmas season.
James W. Rodgers’ stage adaptation closely follows the plot line of the movie, and Studio Tenn’s stellar presentation is a bona fide theatrical treat featuring a well-rounded cast of local favorites.
