Congratulations to Joanne Robertson! She left a comment on this post telling us which holiday classic was her favourite and won a pair of tickets to the evening performance of TNB’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” in Miramichi on December 15th!
For the first time since the 2005-2006 season Theatre New Brunswick will return to the Miramichi. On December 15, TNB presents two performances of the holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life at James M. Hill High School.
George Bailey is the everyman of Bedford Falls whose loyalty and generosity keep him from ever leaving his hometown. One fateful Christmas Eve, he finds himself alone and in trouble. With a little divine intervention – and one determined guardian angel–will George Bailey learn that his has been, after all, a wonderful life?
“This remount of our 2009 hit It’s a Wonderful Life marks TNB Main Stage’s most significant return to Main Stage touring in seven years including a stop in Miramichi. I was born in and have close ties to Miramichi and I couldn’t be happier that TNB is returning to that community,” says TNB Artistic Producer, Caleb Marshall.
It’s a Wonderful Life reunites the cast of the 2009 hit along with New Brunswick native Aaron Kyte. Young TNB Theatre School students Sophie Mais and Matthias Whalen make their TNB Main Stage debut.
It’s a Wonderful Life Miramichi performances are made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of New Brunswick, McCain’s Foods, our production partner Tim Hortons, and our Miramichi performance partners Park Place Décor and Northumberland Dairy.
Theatre New Brunswick would also like to thank the Miramichi Friends of TNB whose support has been invaluable in bringing this production to the Miramichi community.

I love the grinch that stole christmas. I watch that every year at least once.
Why, “It’s a wonderful life” is our favourite – is there any question about it?
The Grinch is my favorite. Charlie Brown Christmas is pretty awesome too 😉
It’s a Wonderful Life!
Grinch That Stole Christmas Is The BEST!
I Love Watching the classic movie, reading the story to my daughter, singing along to the new movie 🙂
I love “White Christmas”!
The Sound of Music is our family holiday choice.
We like to see “A Christmas Story”.
It’s a tie between the hilarious ‘Elf’ and the breathtaking ‘The Polar Express’
It’s a wonderful life
” It’s A Wonderful Life” is a timeless classic. All of us at one time or another has wondered if our life has meant anything to others. Have we made a difference in the world? This story has a lesson for all of us. We are each important to a lot of people and would be missed by family and friends. Life is precious and we should cherish every minute, even the bad times.We are made stronger by adversity.
It’s a Wonderful Life is a favorite because it is such a beautiful story and I can’t wait to share this chance with my Daughter…. we both love the Arts 🙂
If we’re talking classics….miracle on 34th street…non-classic national lampoons Christmas vacation…
It’s a wonderful life—–The very best!!!!!
My favorite is Elf and Charlie Brown’s Christmas when Linus tells the true meaning of Christmas…makes me cry everytime!
I love ‘The Sound of Music’ which seems like a Christmas movie to me because it was always on TV during the Christmas Break.
I love “The Grinch That Stole Christmas”
its a wonderful life — soooooo perfect for Christmas and families to watch together
It’s a Wonderful Life , of course !
Christmas Story is a must watch every year as Ralphie’s quest for his Red Rider BB Gun reminds me of my own childhood.
Love watching the classic movie “It’s A Wonderful Life”. It was my mother-in-law’s all time fav. too.
Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, and Elf are at the top of my list. Can’t decide on just one. I love Christmas movies.
All Christmas movies are good.
my favorite is Elf!
love the grinch who stole Christmas
love all Christmas movies
It is a tradition for me and my uncle to watch Its a Wonderful Life every year…it would be great to surprise him and take him to this grand performance!!
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!
My husband and my favourite Christmas classic has always been, ‘It’s A Wonderful Life.’ We watch it at least once every Christmas season.
The Grinch that stole Christmas is my favourite!
Definitely – “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Good luck to the entire cast n crew, including our nephew, Caleb Marshall.
A Christmas Story!!
absolute fav is National Lampoons Christmas – so much fun
I have always loved ‘A Christmas Story’! I love the familiar feeling of this movie. The reality of yearning for that item you know your parents are cringing deep inside about. The feeling of enjoying the day, no matter what, with your family…then sometimes the dog eats the turkey! *sigh* memories of Chinese food at Xmas.
I introduced my sons(8 and 10) to it a few years ago and it has become a must see each year now.
It’s a Wonderful Life- I’ve always loved Jimmy Stewart!!
My girls and I watched It’s a Wonderful Life every year. It was one of our holiday traditions 🙂
It’s a cliche, but It’s a Wonderful Life is the one!
It’s not Christmas unless you watch It’s a Wonderful Life at least once during the Holidays….”every time a bell rings an angel gets it’s wings”.
It’s a wonderful life!!!!
Miracle on 34th street for sure!
It’s a Wonderful Life….being a single mom my girls and I always had traditions that didn’t cost a lot. So every year we would pop popcorn and curl up and watch It’s a Wonderful life. My girls are now 18 & 23 and it’s still the Christmas show we don’t miss 🙂
The Santa Clause has always been my favorite. My mom bought it for an early Christmas gift for me and my brothers and we all curled up together and watched as a family…a Christmas eve tradition we still do now 17 years later.
Charlie Brown Christmas
Chrstmas Classics are called classics because that is what they are : Classic!!!!! It’s A Wonderful Life is my absolute favorite though!
Enjoy your holiday season!!!!
It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol
It’s a Wonderful Life speaks to each one of us who has at any time in our lives, felt our lives were without purpose. It’s timeless message continues to inspire.
It’s A wonderful Life
Miracle on 34th Street for me!
