Reserved seating tickets for Friday and Saturday (Feb. 23-24) will be for the play only (7 p.m. curtain) and are $10 each. Tickets and information are available at the MountainBrook Village activity office (480 983-5555) on Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. The theater venue and the activity office are on MountainBrook Drive about three blocks north of U.S. Highway 60 and across from the golf course club house.

The play director chose “You Can’t Take It With You” because it’s funny, has been on Broadway many times, was made into a movie and has stood the test of time. Grandpa Vanderhof and his zany family are in a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy. The play has 18 characters on stage, many of whom are portraying family members enjoying their strange hobbies. Grandpa Vanderhof does his best to mediate and bring some semblance of sanity between his off beat family and the very staid and formal Wall Street Kirbys, who visit in full evening dress to meet their son’s fiancĂ©e and her family.

Plan to attend the performance and find out just why “You Can’t Take It With You.”
