S. Fulton To Present Comedy
Southern Fulton High School will present “You Can’t Take It With You,” a comedy in three acts by Moss Hart and George S. Kauffman, on Friday, September 30, and Saturday October 1, 2011, at the Southern Fulton High School auditorium. Performances both evenings will begin at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and the cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children.
The original production of the play opened in 1937 and won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for drama. It was made into a movie starring James Stewart in 1938 and has had several revivals on Broadway.
The play is about the Sycamore family, that at first seem mad, but it is not long before you realize that if they are mad, then the rest of the world is even madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. Tony, the attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore house on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by Mr. and Mrs. Kirby, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores find it hard to understand Alice’s view. Tony knows the Sycamores live the right way, with love and care for each other, while his own family is one that’s crazy. In the end, Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores after he happens in during a visit by the ex-grand duchess of Russia, Olga Katrina, who is currently earning her living as a waitress.
All are invited to this funfilled play. More information is available by calling Southern Fulton High School at 717-294- 3251, Ext 201.
