You Can’t Take it With You – 7PM | $5-$10
Naperville North Performing Arts Center – 899 N. Mill St. Naperville, IL 60563
You Cant Take it With You, one of the most popular and successful plays of modern times, tells the story of the Tony Kirby and Alice Sycamore. When Tony and Alice become engaged, they arrange a meeting for their very different families. Tony’s wealthy yet unhappy parents are shocked by the eccentricities of the Sycamores. They are a family of individualists. They do as they like with no questions asked. From the printing press and snake collection in the living room, to the xylophone corner for constant ballet dancing, to the fireworks in the basement, they’re a zany bunch. The evening ends with everyone getting arrested and the engagement being called off. It isn’t until Grampa’s wise speech to Mr. Kirby about the importance of living life to the fullest that the two families find a way to accept each other, and love conquers all. You Cant Take it With You is a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy. Showtimes are Friday and Saturday, October 19 & 20 at 7PM and Sunday, October 21 at 4PM. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. All seats reserved. Tickets are available at www.nnhsarts.com and at the door.
