THE LONG HOURS of juggling rehearsals and homework, repeating lines and reworking sets, will soon be just a pleasant high school memory for the cast and crew of the Chesapeake High School Theatre Group.
Tonight and tomorrow evening at 7 o'clock, the young actors will present "It's a Wonderful Life," a musical by James Rodgers.
Loosely based on the Frank Capra holiday movie classic of the same name, the musical focuses on how many lives in a small town in the late 1940s would have been affected had one man never been born.
The show is directed by longtime parent volunteer Judy Quevedo, aided by the technical expertise of the dedicated Walt Glinowiecki.
Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
For more details, call the school, 255-9600.
Take a break from the usual Saturday chores to enjoy an all-you-can-eat breakfast from 7: 30 a.m. to 11: 30 a.m. tomorrow at Galilee Lutheran Church.

The cost is $4 for adults and $2.50 for children under 12.
