The classic Christmas story It’s a Wonderful Life will be presented at West Acres Baptist Church.

The free performance will be presented at the church at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15 and 16. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

“It is a free event and tickets are not required, but seating is limited to 1,500 people,” said Jesse Moore, communications coordinator at West Acres. “The project has been underwritten as a gift to our community.”

More than 100 cast, chorus, crew and orchestra members are involved in the production, which lasts about 2½ hours with an intermission.

Auditions for the production were held at the end of the summer, with rehearsals beginning in September. For the past few months, organizers have been working to perfect the performance.

“It’s a Wonderful Life: The Musical is based on the 1946 Christmas movie classic,” said Moore.

“This Broadway-styled production with music, drama and dance takes us to a simpler time with a great Christmas family message: that even when times are hard, every single life is important and makes a difference.”

For more information about the performance, call the church office at (706) 860-6573.
