Gold Leaf Theatre presents You Can’t Take it With You. Join us for this crazy, zany comedy written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. This classic theatre piece is a must for any one who wants to laugh so hard they cry.

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. Come find out what happens next!
