December 7, 2016 (El Cajon) - Peace on Earth, good will toward men. This is the time of year for giving. Give yourself a gift by taking time away from the stress of shopping, baking, social events, wrapping, the list goes on ... Add time for yourself helping others. For$7.00 you can't even go to a movie,  but you can enjoy going toyouth theatre. The look on the faces of the cast as they look out and see a full audience is priceless.

The little theatre is not that big and the cast has family and friends. If just a few of you make time, their Christmas wish will come true.  This show opened last weekend and continues December 8-10 at El Cajon Valley High School.

The story of It's A Wonderful Life is making a difference in other people's lives.

It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry takes Frank Capra's classic film and presents it in the style of a 1940's radio show. Despite the change in format, the powerful message is the same: life can, indeed, be wonderful if we make positive connections with other people and are grateful for what we have in life, even in life's more difficult moments.

George Bailey needed a reality check; do you? When Bailey becomes downcast and tired he decides to end his life. With the help of an angel he finds his Holiday Spirit.

Share your love and find your Holiday spirit. It’s a win-win. Shows start at 7 p.m. so you will get home early enough to work on that endless holiday to-do list.
