Woodinville High School presents 'You Can't Take It With You'
by Halley Anderson,
The Woodinville High School Drama Department's "You Can't Take It With You," is set to open Nov. 8 and run Nov. 9, 15, 16. All performances are at 7:30 p.m.
The play focuses on the Sycamores, an honest and kind American family in 1934, each of which has unique characteristics and quirks. Worry and anxiety simply do not exist for the Sycamores.
Instead, the family concentrates on what makes them happy and fulfills their lives Ñ from collecting snakes to writing plays to creating fireworks. Those who know the Sycamores can not resist their undeniable charm and appeal, like the ice man who loved them so much that one day he just stayed or the milk man before him who also decided to take up residence with the family. This attitude clashes with the workaholic family of a young man who is engaged to marry the youngest Sycamore daughter.
The action of the cheerful, good-natured comedy is sproradically interrupted by firework explosions from the basement. Audiences of all ages will be touched by the play's message.
Flyers offering 2-for-1 tickets for the Nov. 9 show or $2 off general admission tickets for any show will be handed out at local stores. Tickets for students with their ASB cards are $6.50; general admission is $8.50 and VIP tickets (the first several rows with cushy seats) are $10. For information, call (206) 336-3046.
