It’s a Wonderful Life at Massasoit Community College

It’s a Wonderful Life will be performed  at the Massasoit Community College Buckley Theatre for 2 weekends November 25 & 26 and December 2&3  . Inspired by the  1946  film with Jimmy Stewart, this classic play  is brought to vibrant theatrical life It's a Wonderful Life at  Massasoit Community College

Christmas Eve finds George Bailey deeply troubled, and repeated prayers for his wellbeing from numerous friends and family members reach Heaven. Clarence Odbody Angel Second Class, is assigned to save him and earn his wings. Franklin and Joseph, the head angels, review George’s life with Clarence. At the age of 12, George saved the life of his younger brother Harry (George Nokes) who had fallen through the ice on a pond, though George lost the hearing in one ear. Later, as an errand boy in a pharmacy, George saved his grief-stricken boss, druggist Mr. Gower from mistakenly filling a child’s prescription with poison.

Brockton Christmas Holiday Parade and Celebrations 2017

The 31st  annual Greater Brockton Holiday Parade will be held on Saturday November 25th. Besides the parade there is a whole day  of family friendly events to kick off the holiday season. Brockton is re-branding themselves as the USA Christmas Town. Brockton is where the spirit of a community is inspired by the selfless actions of one man, 125 years ago. We all want to believe that our efforts will have a lasting legacy – that we can indeed “change the world” – but very few of us will ever know for certain the impact our lives will have on the world around us. Such is true of James Edgar, a humble but generous businessman who was in the business of caring.
