PLAY DESCRIPTION: You Can’t Take It With You centers on Alice Sycamore and her delightfully eccentric family. In the living room of lovable Grandpa Vanderhof folks are free to do as they please, whether that be dancing ballet, writing plays, cooking up fireworks, or defying tax law. But when Alice falls for her boss’s son, Anthony Kirby Jr., the family’s unusual lifestyle threatens the relationship. Alice fears Tony’s father, an uptight Wall Street executive, cannot accept the free-spirited Sycamores. A family dinner to introduce the two families leads to hilarity and multiple arrests. The play’s big question: what will win out – love or social norms.?
There are 17-19 roles for women and men ages 20 to 75, depending on doubling. This production will employ color-blind casting.
