1. Sun and clouds, high of 40 with snow showers late.
2. If you don’t have plans tonight or Saturday night, or even if you do, please make it a point to see the the sweet, endearing, light and warm classic 1944 play by Mary Chase (which most may know as the famous film with Jimmy Stewart). These young thespians, under the direction of Susan Walsh, do the play much justice with their youthful zeal and great timing; the play is sweet and funny and they are a delight. I was thrilled to have been invited to the dress rehearsal Thursday afternoon and I can guarantee you, it will be the best night of theatre in Montville! So please, make it a point to see ‘Harvey,’ playing tonight at 7 p.m. at MHS and Saturday at 7. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
