Directors Roundtable Backdrops
Spanning many seasons and three decades, A Wonderful Life has many settings--but carefully-selected backdrops can ease your burden! Set the scene in the Bedford Falls of George's youth with TheatreWorld's idyllic VINTAGE MIDWEST TOWN, full of small-town charm. For the home scenes of George's youth, from the dining room in Ma Bailey's Boardinghouse to Mary's mother's home, turn to our timeless interiors, like FAMILY ROOM INTERIOR or VICTORIAN BEDROOM. Both leave ample room for set pieces to create specific scenes. Dance through TheatreWorld's classic, all-American HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM--it's perfect for the beloved graduation dance scene, where George and Mary fall into the pool! BROOKLYN LOFT, with its crumbling walls, is a great choice for the run-down Bailey Building and Loan. In contrast, luxurious BANK INTERIOR is the perfect embodiment of Old Man Potter's greed. Replicate the iconic snow-covered streets of Bedford Falls in winter with Christmas card-like PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS VILLAGE and white-blanket SNOW COVERED WOODS. With or without additional set pieces, either would be the perfect backdrop for George's travels with Clarence and his big epiphany. Finally, George and Mary's lovingly-restored home should feel as warm as the story's happy ending. TheatreWorld's QUINCY MANOR INTERIOR is a comfortable, classic home--and, even better, it also comes in a holiday version, QUINCY MANOR CHRISTMAS, eliminating the need to dress your set for the ending scenes.
