Kaufman and Moss Hart, opening Friday, October 3rd at 7 p.m. in the

Admission will be charged at the door.
You Can't Take It With You has been a perennial favorite for more
than 70 years. Set during the Great Depression, the play tells the
story of two very different families: the Kirby family which
believes in rules, hard work, and sacrifice of "self" for economic
security and status, and the delightfully "alternative" Sycamore
family which operates more like a commune for friends and relatives
who want a place to express themselves and love each other.
When the young Tony Kirby falls in love with Alice Sycamore, the two
families are forced to debate their conflicting values.
Over 45 students are involved with this production, directed by
Wyatt Phillis and Jennifer Keith. Junior Lena Stapleton plays Penny
Sycamore; junior Zac McCray is Grandpa Martin Vanderhof; junior
McKenzie Landers as Alice Sycamore; freshman Justin Woods as Tony
Kirby Jr.; senior Elijah Chapman as Anthony Kirby; sophomore Abby
