Shorecrest Production "You Can't Take it With You" Ends On A High Note
The last performance of Shorecrest's latest production (George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart's comedy, "You Can't Take It With You"), went out with a literal bang this evening. Sorry if you missed it. Shorecrest's productions are always worth seeing.
Upon entering SC's performing arts center, attendees were greeted with a very professional and elaborate set of a 1930s-era house interior complete with a staircase, front, basement, and pantry doors, Persian-style rugs, knick-knack and art-adorned walls, a bay window, and wall sconce lighting creating a homey period-accurate set reminiscent of something you'd expect at The 5th Avenue Theater. Kudos to all who made the set happen.
The cast does a great job with fast-paced dialogue and constant chaos reminiscent of a modern sitcom. The comedic lines were delivered with perfect timing, keeping the audience in stitches. It's no wonder the film version nabbed two Academy Awards from seven nominations.
It is a light-hearted romantic comedy centered around the classic plot of a wealthy family being reluctant to accept their son's engagement to a woman from an eccentric family lower on the social ladder—a fun and engaging show. Don't miss their next production.
