EFFINGHAM, Ill. — Three Chicks and a Stage ring in the season with two performances of the #1 holiday classic of all time, It’s a Wonderful Life on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 2 p.m.at the Effingham Performance Center. Tickets may be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000.
It’s a Wonderful Life tells the story of George Bailey (Zac Skees) who lives in the small town of Bedford Falls, dreams of an adventurous and happy future. His plans are repeatedly dashed by family obligation and civic duty. It’s Christmas Eve and George’s guardian angel, Clarence (Charley Hankins), arrives to show him what the world would be like had he never been born. George finally “gets it” and realizes that it has been, after all, a wonderful life! While this show celebrates the holiday season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: that hard work, fair play and the love and support of family and community will be rewarded.
Three Chicks and a Stage is a non-profit community theater company in residence at the Effingham Performance Center. In this, the Chicks sixth annual Holiday performance, the audience will enjoy beautiful innovative sets and unique lighting effects.
