The classic holiday story “It’s a Wonderful Life” will be brought to life by the Enumclaw High School Drama Department.

The cast and crew – which includes EHS students, alumni and teachers, many performing multiple roles – have been rehearsing since November for this week’s performances.

Like everything else, this version of “It’s a Wonderful Life” has been shaped by the ongoing pandemic. Rather than being performed on stage, it’s a “virtual” effort; the audience will watch on their screen of choice while performers act from remote locations.

The live show will be offered at 7 p.m. on Dec. 17, 18 and 19. Tickets are available online at: enumclawperformingarts.com. The tickets are free, though there is a transaction fee; also at the time there is the opportunity to donate to EHS artistic efforts.

After registering, a link will be sent allowing access to the virtual performance.

This version of Frank Capra’s classic 1946 film has been adapted as a radio play by Philip Grecian. If features an original score by Ben Barker, band director at Enumclaw High.

The story of “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a familiar one: an angel is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.

The cast includes Patrick Hill-Halverson, Harry Gomes, Mateo Cuadros, Mercer Akeson, Augy Hall, Eric Fiedler, Micah Robinson, Elizabeth Tolbert, Jessica Duthie, Shealynn Varnadore, Ana Vasquez, Emma Fehr, Sophie Williams, Kiley Aaby, Nicole Laborte, Gunner Argo, Isaac Soltero, Emma Murphy, Taylor Travis, Malynn Williams, Jade Brewer, Shaelynn Shook, Sylvia Lortie, Kaya Albright, Alexandria Harrington, Adele Razor, Estefania Tabarez, Christy Weinbrecht, Breanna Gutierrez and Hannah Collins.

Technicians are stage manager Nolan Cooper and Morrgan Cooper, sound.

This is the second live-stream effort by the Drama Department, coming on the heels of an October performance of “Frankenstein.”
