PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Returning for its fifth year by popular demand, Class Act Theatre presents an original adaptation of Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life", adapted and directed by local Marietta citizen, Mary Binaco. The story centers on George Bailey, whose kind-hearted acts have kept him in his small hometown of Bedford Falls despite his dreams to become successful and travel the world. Late on Christmas Eve night, consumed with an unshakable feeling of failure, George contemplates the value of his life and questions the importance of his existence. Little does he know that the answers to his questions will be miraculously revealed to him that night through the efforts of a bumbling, yet endearing, angel by the name of Clarence. Class Act Theatre's production of "It's a Wonderful Life" captures all the magic and heartfelt emotion of Capra's movie and is guaranteed to leave you with a tear in your eye and hope in your heart. Don't miss the show that is quickly becoming an Atlanta holiday tradition.

What a Wonderful Night

4.0
I saw the December 11 performance of "It's a Wonderful Life" at the ClassAct Theater in Marietta and found it a delightful rendition of one of my favorite Christmas classics. Robert Zeigler did a great job at portraying George Bailey. The transitions in his roller coaster emotional journey when confronted with each and every event in his life were believeable and delivered with energy and heart. Clarence was darling - Oh, my heavens! Tony Binaco's performances were fun and natural, and he portrayed his characters as altogether different individuals. Chimere Love (what a great name) was spunky and sah-mooth as the flirty Violet; She was perfect. Josephine was also a pleasant narrator as she took us through George's early life. I can see why this show is a sell-out. The last weekend (December 17, 18, and 19) I know is pretty much sold out, but if you call, perhaps there are a few seats available. Allow the little angels and the preshow singing get you in the Christmas mood, if you aren't already! Great job, Mary! Thanks for the front row seat. HEE HAW!!
