VERONA (WKOW) -- Come start your holiday season with VACT as they bring "It’s A Wonderful Life the Musical" to the Verona Area High School Performing Arts Center.
On Tuesday, Dee Baldock stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the musical. Viewers were also treated to a musical performance by John Beard and Bridget Finnel. The two performed, "If You Want the moon."

It’s A Wonderful Life is based on the class 1946 film of the same name starring James Stewart and Donna Read. The show tells the story of George Bailey, a man with dreams higher than the sky but who ultimately has to give up those dreams in exchange for keeping his father’s business and his legacy alive in Bedford Falls after he passes away from a stroke. When a successful streak at the business is cut short by George’s Uncle Billy misplacing $8000, George contemplates giving away the greatest gift that god can give, his life. Luckily, Clarence the “second class angel” comes to his rescue and shows him that life would not be so wonderful without him around.
