PCPA Presents: You Can’t Take It With You
On February 16 through March 5, Santa Maria’s beloved Pacific Conservatory Theatre presents Kaufman and Hart’s “You Can’t Take it with You” at the Marian Theatre venue in Santa Maria. This heartfelt comedy still resonates with a 21st-century audience. Santa Maria’s Pacific Conservatory Theatre is the only professional resident company on the Central Coast and stages the finest classic and contemporary live theater plays.
Laugh heartily and sigh deeply at one of the funniest American comedies of the ages. Winner of the 1937 Pulitzer Prize, Kaufman and Hartʼs batty reflection on the madness of sanity in a money-mad world remains as insightful and delightful as when it first graced the stage. Tony, attractive young son of the unhappily affluent Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the joyous quirky home of her family on the wrong evening. In a house where you do as you like, no questions asked, they encounter the open circle of Sycamore family and friends – novel novelist, devoted dancer, ballet master, ex-Grand Duchess waitress, amateur printer, tax evaders, society shirkers and free thinkers – and the evening explodes into hysterical, and all-too-real fireworks.
Runs February 16-March 5 in the Marian Theatre. Visit PCPA.org for specific showtimes and ticket information.
