Nutley = Bedford Falls?

Wouldn't it be curious to compare the film It's A Wonderful Life and the small town atmosphere with the town where one of the screenwriters grew up, good old Nutley, N.J.

Until we get to that point, local blog viewers might want to note that Sunday - the Nutley Litle Theatre will present a treatment of the seasonal favorite.

The Reader’s Theater group of Nutley Little Theatre will perform a reading of the Frank Capra holiday classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” on Sunday, Dec. 11, 7:30 p.m., at the NLT Barn, 47 Erie Place, Nutley.

Vicky Chalk of Nutley will direct the production, which is free and open to the public. Reader’s Theater features dramatic readings of new and established plays, supplementing NLT’s regular, fully staged performances.

Those attending last month's Nutley Hall of Fame induction heard first-hand from a number of dignitaries that Nutley resident (the late) Frances Goodrich wrote the screenplay for the orignal film classic of "It's a Wonderful Life." Goodrich also won a Pulitizer Prize for writing the stage play "The Diary of Anne Frank."
