The Arts Club is ramping up for the holidays with a handful of seasonal shows that will warm your heart. The first to open is It’s a Wonderful Life at the Granville Island Stage which will run from November 26th to December 29th, 2012. This theatrical adaptation will transform the familiar story which is based on the classic film by Frank Capra.
