You Can't Take It With You

By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Grants Pass High School Theatre Department presents their Fall play: "You Can't Take It With You," playing for two weekends, October 27th - November 5th, at the Grants Pass High School Performing Arts Center.

One of the most popular and successful plays of modern times, "You Can't Take It With You" is Kaufman and Hart's hilarious, delightful portrait of a charmingly eccentric family. When Alice Sycamore falls for her boss, Tony Kirby, a handsome scion of Wall Street, she fears that their two families – so unlike in manner, politics and finances – will never come together. But why be obsessed by money? After all, you can’t take it with you...


"You Can't Take It With You" features a cast of 19 and a crew of 15, all students from Grants Pass High School. The play is directed by Wayd Drake and produced by GPHS theatre teacher Julia Cuppy.  Creative team members include Tianna Eddy as Assistant Producer, Connor Pylant as Technical Director, Clyde Highbarger as Lighting Designer, Wayd Drake as Set Designer, Rose Chatfield as Costume Designer, Ray Myers as Makeup Designer, and Jay Grimm as Stage Manager.

The show plays October 27th - November 5th at the Grants Pass High School Performing Arts Center, with Friday and Saturday shows at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for all ages, with general seating. Tickets are available at and at the door one hour before showtime.
