‘A hilarious rendition of “You Can’t Take It With You,” the heartwarming comedy presented by Tahoma High School Drama, plays November 11-19, 2016. Join in on the fun and support these talented actors as they bring to life a very entertaining version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, directed by Paul Rempfer, with 1930s-era costuming by Jeanine Girello.

Three generations of an eccentric and idealistic family, The Sycamores, have been living their peculiar lives together in their Manhattan home pursuing what makes them happy. But when their only practical daughter, Alice Sycamore, becomes engaged to Tony Kirby, a bank Vice President, 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. By evening’s end, the free-thinking Sycamores and very proper Kirbys spend some life-defining moments with one another. You won’t want to miss this very entertaining evening!
