Seasonal shows will be perfect festive treat

It's a Wonderful Life
It's a Wonderful Life

A Christmas classic will be the perfect theatrical treat when it comes to a village hall later this month.

Farnham Maltings presents It’s A Wonderful Life at Howick on Sunday, December 14.

Frank Capra’s classic 1946 movie needs no introduction. It’s one of the best-loved stories in American cinema and traditional viewing during the Christmas season.

George Bailey, a desperate middle-aged clerk discovers the difference he has made to his family, his friends and his home town – with a little help from Clarence, the angel.

Following the success of Miracle on 34th Street, In Praise of Elephants and last season’s Iranian Feast, Farnham Maltings is bringing the struggles and joys of 1940s small town America to the villages and towns of England.

Using their own, inimitable style the company has created a bittersweet comedy drama that promises to warm the coldest of places through the long winter nights.

The show is being performed at Howick Village Hall at 7pm.

Tickets are £8 adults, £4 children and £20 family. To book, call 01665 577384.

It’s A Wonderful Life comes to north Northumberland as part of Highlights Rural Touring Scheme’s autumn/early winter programme.
