You Can't Take It With You - Factory Theatre Comedy

The Greenville College Factory Theatre will showcase the wacky but warmhearted Sycamore family in the production of Moss Hart and George Kaufman’s hit comedy YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU, scheduled for April 15-18 at 7:30 p.m.

The action occurs in the home of the eccentric Sycamores. Among exploding fireworks, spontaneous reading of plays and exuberant xylophone music, they all live in happy, if not relatively noisy madness. Alice Sycamore (Ali Richert) loves Tony Kirby (Nathan Ondracek), the vice president of his father’s company. The Sycamore’s quirky lifestyle comes under scrutiny and suspicion when Tony’s parents (Andrew Richards and Liz Pontious) pay an unexpected visit to Alice’s home. In the hilarious ensuing moments, the entire household faces fast-paced pandemonium, complete with pickled pig’s feet, unexpected wrestling moves, detonating fireworks, and house arrest. When the smoke clears, only the wise counsel of Grandpa (Dan Jensen) coupled with the blintz-making prowess of an ex-grand duchess (Chelsea Tredor) can save the day.

Additional cast members of this zany, heartwarming comedy include Lindsey Schuberth, James Turner, Gemma Heilmer, Tyler Simmons, Alex Gohde, Diana Buchanan, Daniel Turner, Amanda Brinkman, Keith Davis, Rebecca Washburn, Taylor Griggs, Elisabeth Ward, and William Ahern. Often described as the funniest comedy ever written, YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU promises to provide an evening of fun for the whole family.
