CHP sees sell-outs crowds for ‘Wonderful Life’ opening

The Carriage House Players’ opening weekend of their production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” was a successful one, with two sell-out crowds.    

“CHP’s staging of this beloved story delivers the classic tale with the flair of our own hometown talent,” said Krysa Spears, the show’s director.

“This particular adaptation is very true to the Capra film. Our goal is to present our own interpretation, while still preserving the integrity of the story.”
