On September 13, the cast and crew of the fall play, It’s A Wonderful Life, held a meeting in D101 to discuss the logistics of putting together the show and the tentative rehearsal schedule for the upcoming months. They also had their first read through of the script with the entire ensemble.

The main cast consists of David Kominars (George Bailey), Gabby North (Mary Hatch), Jack Maerten (Clarence–the angel), Ricky Guarigulia (Mr. Potter), and Rhiannon Seyfried (Violet). The full cast list can be seen on the drama and dance website.

The students of the department were eager to start the production process.

Junior Rhiannon Seyfried said, “I’m most excited to play around with character whose personality changes halfway the show and to experience the different relationships each character has with each other.”

George Bailey is the lead role, and his character struggles with meeting his family’s needs in the face of the Great Depression. David Kominars, who played The Beast in the spring musical,  said, “The show has such a great story to share and everyone can get something from it.”
