Tahoma High Drama Revives A Comedy Classic
“You Can’t Take It With You!” Nov 11-19
“You Can’t Take It With You,” the hilarious and heartwarming comedy, is presented by Tahoma High School Drama Club from November 11-19, 2016. Join in on the fun and support these talented actors as they hit the stage with a lively rendition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, directed by Paul Rempfer, with 1930s-era costuming by Jeanine Girello.
Three generations of a peculiar and idealistic family, The Sycamores, have been living their eccentric lives together in their Manhattan home pursuing what makes them happy. But when their only practical daughter, Alice Sycamore, becomes engaged to a bank Vice President, Tony Kirby, the clan must meet the new in-laws, a high-powered wealthy Wall Street family with their own firm ideas about success.
Disaster ensues when The Kirbys arrive for dinner on the wrong date and, despite the best-laid plans, sees Alice’s family in all of its crazy glory. The evening ends with everyone in the house getting arrested, leading to defining moments between the two families as they decide what’s most important in life.
