A Message from the Director
BSM's production of It's A Wonderful Life is a radio-play version of the holiday classic starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. It tells the tale of George Bailey, a typical American man who dreams of an exciting life but continually finds himself sacrificing his own ambitions to better serve his family and community. When he finds himself falling on hard times and sees no way out, he considers suicide, but he is saved at the last minute by an apprentice guardian angel, Clarence. Clarence shows George what his town would be like if he had never been born to help him realize just how important his life has been for those around him. But the love and support that pours in from the community when they hear about George's trouble is what brings us to a happy ending. I can't think of a more fitting message in these trying times than how much better the world can be when we look out for others and come together as a community to support and uplift those in need.
