EXPLiCIT: You Can't Take It With You

Sunday, August 12, 2018
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location: Alumni House, 345 S. Hill Ave.

The Caltech Players present the Pulitzer Prize winning You Can't Take It With You, by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, for two weekends in August.

With its host of eccentric characters, this exuberant comedy has remained an American favorite for eighty years, yet is surprisingly timely in its themes of acceptance, inclusion, and tolerance, with its story of how a community can come together to become a family and have a blast in the meantime.

Director David Seal leads a cast and crew of students, staff, JPLers, alumni, and local talent. Together, these Caltech Players create a hilarious and touching evening of theatre suitable for all ages.

Performances run Friday through Sunday, August 10‑12, and Thursday through Saturday, August 16‑18. All performances begin at 8:00 p.m.

You Can't Take It With You is produced by arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
