UMW News BureauDon't miss the UMW drama department's performance of the holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life." The University of Montana Western drama department will perform the holiday classic “It’s A Wonderful Life” Dec. 11 through the 15 in the Beier Auditorium. The curtain rises at 7:33 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. A Sunday performance, at 1:31 p.m., will allow all senior citizens to see the show for free. For all other show times, admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is the 1946 classic that follows George Bailey, played by Bill Louis, as he is taken on a journey to discover the significance of his own life. “The production of this American classic is very timely,” drama instructor and director Larry Brazill said. “With the recent bank failures, audiences will be able to relate to the struggle to pay off loans, to define their values and learn about the importance of community and humanity; the same struggles that the characters in the play face.” The cast is comprised of Montana Western students and Dillon community members.
