The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. George's guardian angel must descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him, by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. It’s a Wonderful Life will run Friday, November 29, 2013 until Sunday, December 22, 2013. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. This show is recommended for all ages.

Sorry! Wrong Chimney! - 7:55 pm
Olympia Little Theatre, 1925 Miller Avenue NE, Olympia, WA 98507
“Sorry! Wrong Chimney!” is a light-hearted tale of good intentions, mistaken identities, and misplaced hypnotism guaranteed to bring on the holiday cheer. It’s the perfect Christmas present for everyone! Newlywed David Tuttle is moonlighting as a department store Santa so he can buy his bride, Samantha, the perfect present for their first Christmas together as husband-and-wife. To cover, he tells her that he is working late at the office but when she discovers that he isn’t and suspects the worst! A nosy neighbor, an amateur hypnotist, and visits by an innocent policeman, and the notorious “Santa” burglar bring their own hilarious complications to the situation but “all’s well that ends well” in this ridiculous holiday entertainment! The show runs November 29 through December 22, with shows Thursday through Saturday evenings & Sundays matinees. Info:
