Petrolia Community Theatre is thrilled to announce our November 2014 show will be "You Can't Take It With You"
a comedy in three acts
by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman.
Director: Carol Graham

The year is 1938 and at first the Sycamore family seems crazy with their view of doing what makes you happy. Grandpa doesn't believe in income tax; so he doesn't pay it. Ed prints messages which he puts into the boxes of candy his wife sells; messages that are of interest to the FBI. Then there is Mr. De Pinna who makes fireworks in the basement. It's an eclectic mix but a happy one.

In contrast to these delightful people is the unhappy Kirby family.
Naturally, Tony Kirby falls in love with Alice Sycamore. To show them that life should be lived to the fullest he brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home... on the wrong evening!
After that, Alice is convinced it won't work out between them. Add to this, a Grand Duchess who is now a waitress, a drunken actress, and 3 G-men and no one knows what will happen next.

List of cast here!
