Washington High School students will present the classic screwball comedy 'You Can't Take It With You,' by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the WHS Auditorium.
The play, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1938, concerns Alice, the only relatively normal member of the eccentric Sycamore family, who has fallen in love with Tony Kirby, whose wealthy banker father and his snobbish mother strongly disapprove of the match. When the Kirbys are invited to dinner to become better acquainted with their future in-laws, things do not turn out the way Alice had hoped. The WHS production is directed by Tyler Youngers, with Emily Estala and Abby Hayes serving as Assistant Student Directors.
