Auditions for YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU  

A classic comedy of errors, this play promises fun, entertaining roles for a variety of actors! Set in 1940's New York City, the Sycamore family, filled   with aspiring artists, ballerinas, writers, inventors, amateur firework makers and more, seems a bit crazy! Especially when compared to the upper-crust, reliable, respectable Kirby family. But when Tony Kirby falls in love with Alice Sycamore, we start to wonder if perhaps the Sycamores have life figured out more than we think! After all, you can have all the riches in the world, but you can't take it with you!
