You Can’t Take it with You Auditions

by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Synopsis: The family of Martin Vanderhof lives “just around the corner from Columbia University — but don’t go looking for it.” Grandpa, as Martin is more commonly known, is the paterfamilias of a large and extended family of charming eccentrics. His granddaughter, Alice, is an attractive and loving girl who is still embarrassed by her family’s idiosyncrasies. When Alice falls for her boss, Tony, a handsome scion of Wall Street, she fears that their two families – so unlike in manner, politics and finances – will never come together. But why be obsessed by money? After all, you can’t take it with you…

No absences during Tech Week & Performances Feb 5-10, 15-17. Please do not schedule appointments or other activities during rehearsals. If an absence is unavoidable, please email details.

If you are absent due to illness, we will communicate with you on a case-by-case basis to determine the best plan for moving forward and trying to keep the student in the cast.

Two unexcused absences will lead to dismissal from the show.
