SAY Sí’s ALAS Youth Theatre Company puts a youthful spin on It’s a Wonderful Life with Frankie and Elisabeth Get Their Wings, a new production incorporating original live rock music. Set in a “typical San Antonio neighborhood,” the play follows Elisabeth, a community-minded high-school senior who volunteers annually at a food and clothing drive. When complications threaten to ruin the holidays for hundreds, the college-bound teen begins to feel at odds with spreading peace and harmony — leaving it up to Frankie, a young angel still earning her wings, to step in and spell out the difference she’s making. Guests to Sunday’s matinee are invited to donate an unwrapped toy or child/youth-sized socks or undergarment in exchange for admission. $5; 3pm Sun, Dec 16; SAY Sí Black Box Theater, 1518 S Alamo, (210) 212-8666, saysi.org.
