Fireworks Fly at the Fall Play!

Family can do crazy things to people. And the Sycamore family is a little crazy to begin with.

The CJ Performing Arts department presents the fall play, You Can't Take It With You, by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart this weekend.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy runs Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14-15 at 7:30 p.m., and again Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. in the auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students.

The action takes place in the oversized, New York home of Martin Vanderhof (played by Angelo Moore-Knight ‘18) and centers around the interactions of an eccentric clan of families, the Sycamores and the Kirbys.

When Alice Sycamore (Catherine Grady ‘15), the youngest daughter and most sensible of the bunch, brings her wealthy fiancé Tony Kirby (Noah Mussin Phillips '17) and his stuffy parents over for dinner, fireworks start to fly!

“This is a play that has been produced thousands of times since it debuted in 1936. Its timeless humor has lasted for generations,” said teacher Caitlin Bennett, fall play director. “You shouldn't miss it because it is hilarious, and our students have worked very hard to produce it.”

More than 40 students making up the large cast and crew worked for more than two months to put on this exciting and explosive play. A combination of sound effects, elaborate sets, and sidesplitting scenes makes this show a surefire crowd-pleaser.

Come see this classic performed on the CJ stage and support our students this weekend!
