It’s a Wonderful Life – The Musical

Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey’s life from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond, as we all take a journey to discover whether his life has mattered at all. Cinematically scored and theatrically staged, this adaptation breathes musical life into a familiar story, while retaining the warmth, humor, and pathos of the original. A new holiday classic for devotees and newcomers alike.

Book and Lyrics by Keith Ferguson
Music by Bruce Greer


“Audiences are going to be enormously entertained by this enjoyable show. It’s a crowd pleaser you don’t want to miss!”   –Ruby Nancy, Quad-City Times (Indiana)

“The score, by Keith Ferguson and Bruce Greer, is slick and often memorable. The musical numbers and Mr. Greer’s lush orchestrations are consistently impressive.”   –Tom Sime, The Dallas Morning News

“The ‘Best Holiday Show’ award goes to Quad City Music Guild’s inspiring It’s a Wonderful Life!”   –Ruby Nancy, Quad-City Times (Indiana)

“…the children in the audience appeared to watch with rapt attention. We all did . . . the challenge of breathing new life into a story that most of us probably know far too well; familiarity with Frank Capra’s movie may bring audiences to the theatre, but good luck getting us to stop thinking of the movie during its performance. Based on the enthusiastic — and more than deserved — standing ovation that greeted [the] curtain call, however, I doubt that any of us still had Capra on the brain. The crowd may have attended the show already loving It’s a Wonderful Life, but quickly enough, it was clear that what we were loving was this particular It’s a Wonderful Life.”   –The River Cities Reader (Illinois)
