This year Cheshire High School Drama is presenting a comedic play in three acts by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, "You Can't Take it With You." Popularized in film by Frank Capra, the original production of the play opened at the Booth Theater on December 14, 1936, and played for 837 performances. The play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The CHS show involves over 25 students and will be a wonderful and lighthearted treat for all!
The show centers on the quirky, but loveable, Sycamore family. Each member of the family has chosen to follow his/her passion with abandon - often to ridiculous ends. This includes young Alice who has fallen in love with her boss' son, Tony Kirby. While Alice is entirely embarassed by her eccentric family, Tony is endeared to them and even prefers them to is uptight and stuffy parents. He rearranges and pre-planned dinner between the families so his parents show up on the wrong night and see the Sycamores in all their unabashed glory. As you can imagine, comedy ensues.
The show is a breath of fresh air and whimisically reminds us that the most important things in life are the people whom we love and that most of the things the world tells us we should worry about and concern ourselves with are things you just can't take with you when you die anyway!
Tickets will be sold at the door only. Students/Senior Citizens $8 and Adults $10
