Curtain Call Theatre will stage the hilarious comedy “You Can’t Take it with You” for two weekends at its Warehouse Theater, 12535 Old Plank Drive, New Lenox.
This funny show is centered around two families, the Sycamores and the Kirbys.
At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before it is realized 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, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view.
Meanwhile, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own are people wrong, will not give her up.
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.
There’s also the printing press set up in the parlor, Rheba the maid and her friend Donald, and Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in income tax.
“This delightful show is certain to have the audience roaring with laughter and is perfect for those who love to laugh,” officials said.
The show is directed by Mark Frost and David Luecht, who have created an escape for the audience with great characterization and amazing costumes and sets.
The cast is full of community theater veterans and newcomers from throughout the Southland.
The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 20-21 and 26-28, and there will be a matinee showing at 2 p.m. April 22.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the box office at (708) 699-2228.
