PG Players Auditions

PG Players to hold auditions for “You Can't Take It With You”

 

Pleasant Grove Players will be holding auditions for their upcoming production of the heartwarming comedy, "You Can’t Take it with You," by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, on Tuesday, February 20 and Wednesday, February 21 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm in the Keith Christeson Theater on the first floor of the PG Library (30 E. Center). Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. No appointment is needed. Howard and Kathryn Little will be directing this production.

 

"You Can’t Take It With You" is a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy.  At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder.  In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening.  The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question.  The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view.  Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress.  No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.

 

Needed are adult men and women of all ages.

 

Performance dates are April 20 – May 7 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings. There will also be a Saturday matinee on May 5.
