MARION — Paradise Alley Players will bring a classic holiday tale to life on the stage of the Marion Cultural and Civic Center this winter, but they need actors and actresses to do so.

The theater troupe will host auditions for “It’s a Wonderful Life” from 6-8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 1-2, at the civic cen-ter. They need 12 men, 10 women ages 20 to 70, four boys ages 10 to 13 and two girls ages 8 to 12. The play will be directed by Joyce Hope.

Set in the small town of Bedford Falls, “Wonderful Life” tells of everyman George Bailey whose dreams of escaping the town for an adventure have been hindered by family commitment and civil service. On Christmas Eve, his guardian angel descends on Bed-ford Falls to show Bailey what life would be like if he’d never lived. The story was made famous in the 1946 film of the same name.
