Casting Call: It's A Wonderful Life, The Musical

Memorial Opera House is seeking men, women and children to fill 25 to 30 roles in our upcoming holiday production of It's A Wonderful Life, The Musical.

Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond as we all take a journey to discovered 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.
