Its a Wonderful Life- SOLD OUT!

WilleyWorld presents Its a Wonderful Life with Chance Willey as George Bailey  who is a small-town man whose life seems so desperate he contemplates suicide. He had always wanted to leave Bedford Falls to see the world, but circumstances and his own good heart have led him to stay. He sacrificed his education for his brother’s, kept the family-run savings and loan afloat, protected the town from the avarice of the greedy banker Mr. Potter, and married his childhood sweetheart. As he prepares to jump from a bridge, his guardian angel intercedes; showing him what life would have become for the residents of Bedford Falls if he had never lived.


Starring Chance Willey as George Bailey, Greg Tullis as Potter, Terry Thompson as Clarence, Lindsay Wheeler as Mary.  Some of Starved Rock Country’s favorite actors fill out this tremendous cast.  Walt Willey directs
