Hope Springs, Eternal

What would you do if someone offered you more money than you've ever seen in your life to do something worse than anything you've ever done in your life? It all starts when a man named Charlie wanders into the Hope Springs sheriff's office one afternoon during the Christmas season. Some say Charlie is an angel but he sure makes one devil of a mess. Who is Charlie and what is he up to?

The award-winning San Diego North County Players brings the exciting stage play, Hope Springs, Eternal to the stage this holiday season.

Written by master storyteller and nationally published playwright Charles Carr, Hope Springs, Eternal tells the story of a post-World War II Midwestern town caught up a web of lies, corruption, and ultimate redemption.

Told in the tradition of beloved classics like A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, and It's a Wonderful Life,
Hope Springs, Eternal is just the thing to get you and your entire family into the holiday spirit.
