Attention all student actors! Acting instructor Beth Rexroat has announced that the first play for the 2013-14 school year will be the award winning comedy, You Can’t Take it With You by: George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
With the hopes of bringing a full crowd to laughter, interested students are encouraged to attend the first informational meeting on Tuesday, September 10 in the auditorium from 2:30 until 3:15. Auditions will begin Monday September 16 until Friday September 20.
“[This play] is especially exciting this year due to [it] being a comedy!” said sophomore, Seth Weinstein, “It’s about a dysfunctional family that’s very easy to relate to… I know, no matter what, it will be a great production!” Students, like Seth, will be asked to read a monologue during auditions, separate for males and females, with the chance of a main role in the upcoming performance.
“A play requires a lot of time and energy for the director and the students,” said Rexroat in a press release. Although the production will not be performed until the evenings of December 5, 6, and 7, actors, crew, and instructors will be devoting their time and energy all throughout fall and winter to make this a success.
What actually is a thoughtful lesson compacted into a delightful comedy, You Can’t Take it With You tells the story of two families, the seemingly mad but truthfully charming Sycamores and the unadventurous Kirbys. When daughter, Alice Sycamore invites boyfriend, Tony Kirby over for dinner all turns upside down in the up roaring chance meeting between two completely opposite families in the hype New York City.
