“It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Ellwood House Museum
December 14, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$5
For many, the Holiday season isn’t complete without a screening of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic film, “It’s A Wonderful Life.” For DeKalb County residents, a visit to the decorated Ellwood mansion holds an equally prominent spot at the top of year-end bucket lists.
On Saturday, December 14 from 11 AM until 12:30 PM Stage Coach Players and Ellwood House Museum will partner to present a kid-friendly preview of the theater group’s winter production, an adaptation of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” using the first floor of the Ellwood mansion as a backdrop to perform select scenes from the play.
Before and after each 20-minute performance, participants will be welcomed back to the Visitor Center for snacks and crafts related to the show.
“It’s a Wonderful Life” is the final 2019 event in Ellwood Explorers, the Ellwood House Museum’s youth educational series. Though the event is geared toward elementary-aged students and families, all ages are welcome.
Tickets are limited, and must be purchased in advance ($5 each, kids 5 and under free) at ellwoodhouse.org/learn. For more information, please call (815) 756-4609.
Ellwood Explorers is generously supported by the Cy Miller Foundation. The museum is located at 509 N. First Street in DeKalb.
