The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him, by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one’s family and community will be rewarded.

With a background in education and music, and a passion and talent for writing for children from a child’s perspective, Rick has been writing and performing for children for 30 years. Published in 1983, his first collection of songs, “Bubblegum” was followed in 1985 by “Alligator in the Elevator.” The success of these early collections launched a full-time career of writing and performing for young audiences.
As a family man with three children of his own, early inspirations came from home and children in the neighborhood. From school classrooms, gyms and auditoriums, concert venues large and small, parks, fairgrounds, campgrounds (and even a parade float!) Rick shares his songs, songs that delight in the joys of childhood. From school-age children and preschoolers to grownups who first heard the songs when they were kids, his audiences are all inclusive where generations enjoy the music together. www.rickcharette.com

David Mallett hails from a small town in northern Maine, and in a career that spans four decades, his music has traveled to all corners of the world. His songs have been recorded by more than 150 artists, including Pete Seeger, Alison Krauss, John Denver, Emmylou Harris, and even the Muppets, and his “Garden Song” has become an American folk classic.
He has performed in town halls and folk clubs across America and Europe in addition to major venues such as Barns of Wolf Trap, Newport Folk Festival, and “Prairie Home Companion”. The Bangor Daily News recognized him as one of the 58 most memorable Mainers of the 20th Century. The readers of FOLKWAX (www.folkwax.com) voted him 2003 Artist of the Year and “Artist in Me” 2003 Album of the Year. He has recorded 14 albums, including “The Fable True” (2007), based on Thoreau’s last expedition in 1857, a spoken word CD with accompanying music. www.davidmallett.com
