LINCOLN - The Lincoln College Theater
Department will present the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “You Can’t
Take It With You” in the Johnston Center for the Performing Arts
Meyer Theater starting Wednesday, Nov. 5. The play, by George
Kaufman and Moss Hart, opened on Broadway in December 1936 and is
considered one of the greatest American comedies ever written.
The story revolves around Alice Sycamore as she tries to figure
out how to introduce her fiancé and his up-tight, upper-crust family
to her rather more eccentric family. When the two families finally
meet, the worlds of the wealthy Kirbys and the off the wall
Sycamores collide with a bang. This production features Kendall Katz
as Alice and Anthony Cook, Jr., as love-struck fiancé Tony Kirby,
Jr. The show also features Lincoln College stage veterans Lauren
Stanfield as Alice’s crazy mother Miriam, Tegan Follis as sister
Essie, and Isaiah Denton as Grandpa Vanderhof.
This show is for the whole family, from ages 9 to 99, and is sure to
warm your heart and make you laugh out loud. The show opens
Wednesday, Nov. 5, with 7:30 p.m. performances through Saturday,
Nov. 8, and will close with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Nov. 9.
Tickets priced for adults with discounts for seniors, and students
