RUSHVILLE — The Rush County Players will be holding auditions for the Christmas classic, "It's A Wonderful Life," based on the beloved Frank Capra movie starring James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Donna Reed, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Playhouse, 201 W. 2nd Street, Rushville, on Sept. 27 and 28.Ê

Roles to be filled range from high school age to adult. Backstage help is also needed, so if you would like to participate, but don't want to be on stage, we have a place for you!

Director Matt Amos, Assistant Director Cindy Amos and Producer Shelli Griffin are excited to bring this wonderful tale to life during the upcoming holiday season. With so many people going through tough times, a tale of love, redemption and appreciation for our everyday lives will be sure to strike a chord with many people.Ê RCP also plans to support several local charity endeavors through-out the run of this show. Details on these efforts will be forthcoming.

Showdates and location are yet to be firmed up, but the production is projected to take place in mid-November. The Players are looking for their own Clarence, as they continue to search for a long-term home. This will be the Players 36th season, making them one of the longest-running community theatre groups in the state.

Clumsy Custard cuts the mustard!

the land of Zob. And of Zob, there were two parts; the upper kingdom, Zob
Proper, and the lower kingdom, Zob Improper. In Zob Proper, King Dumb is
preparing his daughter, Princess Prince, for the Prince Picking Ceremony.
But, the evil Dacron from Zob Improper has other plans for her.
Will the princess ever find love or become the next meal for the Clumsy Custard?
