The holiday tradition returns to the UCPAC Hamilton Stage!

George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help is community, considers suicide on Christmas Eve after losing $8,000. His guardian angel, Clarence, shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born. George meant so much to so many people; should he just throw it all away?

Make our new holiday tradition yours!

Bringing the Wonderful Life Spirit of Giving home to the UCPAC, we will once again be collecting toys and gifts at our performances to support the YWCA Union County Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter' Project North Pole. They are looking for new unwrapped gifts for women, teens, and children who won't be in their own homes this holiday season. Big gift bags, tape & wrapping paper are also appreciated.
