You Can’t Take It With You, the madcap classic comedy, is back on the Playhouse stage.  The free-thinking Sycamore family seems mad. One member of the family is manufacturing fireworks in the basement, another has a printing press set up in the parlor, while others pursue dance, painting, and the xylophone in the living room. But the Sycamores’ routine is disrupted when daughter Alice brings her fiancé, Tony, and his conservative, straight-laced family to dinner on the wrong evening.

 

The performance on Sunday, June 12, will have live audio description, provided by IRIS. Please contact our ticket office at 515-277-6261 if you would like to use this free service. ASL interpreted performances available with advance notice.
