Event Details

The members of Bunnell S.T.A.G.E. invite you to attend our winter production of You Can’t Take It With You, a knee-slapping comedy written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. This play is a humorous take on a poor secretary who falls in love with her company’s rich Vice President. Her crazy family may just be too much for his prim and proper parents.
You Can’t Take It With You won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was the basis for a 1938 film of the same name staring Jean Arthur, James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Edward Arnold. The film won the Academy Award for both Best Picture and Best Director. There was also a television adaptation of the original play in 1979 and another in 1984. A situation comedy, staring Harry Morgan as grandpa, aired during 1987-1988.
Martin “Grandpa” Vanderhof (Ryan Jepsen) is the head of a zany household. His daughter, Penny (Kaitlyn Wilson) and her husband Paul Sycamore (Tom Valus) write plays and make fireworks while their daughter Essie (Melissa Meraviglia) makes candy that her husband Ed Carmichael (Billy Lang) sells. Essie’s ballet instructor, Boris Kolenkov (Joseph Welch) adds a booming personality to the household. Their daughter Alice (Samantha Carroll) is the only family member with a job outside the house. As a secretary for Kirby and Co., she falls in love with the Vice President, Tony Kirby (Richie DeBaise). Everything is going smoothly until Tony’s parents (Kevin Kiley and Erin Cavoto) meet the Sycamores. What happens when the Kirbys and Sycamores clash? Only time will tell.
You Can’t Take It With You is co-directed by Betsy Hull and Sara Renstrom. Senior Marybeth Condon worked tirelessly to produce the show. Special thanks to Lawrence Farrell and the S.T.A.G.E. crew for set construction, lighting and sound. Also, a huge thanks to the benevolent S.T.A.G.E. parents for their love and support for the program. We hope to see you for this hilarious and upbeat show from December 8th-11th.
