Two local theater companies are performing versions of the holiday favorite “It’s a Wonderful Life” in the coming weeks.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” takes place in the fictional town of Bedford Falls shortly after World War II. The original film starred James Stewart as George Bailey, a man whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve gets the attention of guardian angel Clarence Oddbody, sent to help him in his hour of need.

Lost Nation Theatre in Montpelier will transform the stage into a 1940s broadcasting studio for a live radio play version, back by popular demand. Performances are set for Dec. 4 and 5 at 7 p.m. To learn more, visit lostnation-

The Lamoille County Players will present the  classic play Dec. 6-7 and 13-14 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 8 and 15 at 2 p.m.  at the Hyde Park Opera House. For more information, visit www.LCPlayers.com.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
