The Rouss Center for the Arts in New Market, Virginia will officially open on December 3rd, 2016, at 7:00 pm with the presentation of “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Produced and Directed by Frank Capra and released in 1946 it was originally not very well received, but due to many showings on television in the 1980s it has become one of the classic Christmas shows. Jimmy Stewart stars as George Bailey, a man who has given up his own dreams to help others and finally becomes so frustrated that he plans suicide on Christmas Eve. Fortunately his Guardian Angel, Clarence, steps in and show George what life in his home town would have been like if George had never been born.
December 3, is also New Market’s Christmas celebration. Join us for all the wonderful activities planned including the annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting. And don’t forget “Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.”
