Theatre Department Premieres “You Can’t Take It With You” Nov. 7-10

Curtains will rise for Truman Theater’s performance of the comedic play “You Can’t Take it With You” at 8 p.m. Nov. 7-10 in Ophelia Parrish’s Severns Theatre.

“You Can’t Take it With You” is a Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning production that first premiered Dec. 14, 1936. The plot surrounds the laughable story of the strange happenings possible when two young people, Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby, fall in love. Both are of families with very different backgrounds, and they soon find out the chaos involved in attempting to manage a relationship while their families are at odds.

The play is composed of a cast of around 20 students and is directed by Ron Rybkowski. Neva Sheaffer and Adam Hunn will play the roles of Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby respectively.

Admission to the performance is free and tickets may be reserved prior to opening night by calling the Truman State University Box Office at 660.785.4515. The public is encouraged to attend.
