This month you’ve got a chance to see a local stage production of a beloved holiday classic.

The Renaissance Project brings you “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It’s the story of George Bailey, a man at the end of his rope. His guardian angel, Clarence, appears to show him what life would’ve been like if Bailey had never been born.

According to a press release from the Renaissance Project, show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m. It will run for the next two weekends through Dec. 22, with an additional matinee on Dec. 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. To purchase them, click here. The theater is located at 4650 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur, Georgia 30034, on the campus of Greater Traveler’s Rest Baptist Church.

More about The Renaissance project:

“The Renaissance Project is a labor of love for Michael H. Cole, a ubiquitous actor (Kill the Messenger, 42, Revolution, Being Mary Jane, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, etc.) well-known in Atlanta’s film community. This is Mr. Cole’s thirteenth year as artistic director for TRP, a multi-cultural theater company in Decatur with a stated mission to engage diverse audiences and explore alternative perspectives.”
