Belton Theatre Department
107 W. Pirate Pkwy Belton, Mo 64012 816-489-7500
Belton High School Theatre Department is proud to present the romantic comedy, You Can’t Take It With You, one of Broadway’s more eccentric shows.
At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in the income tax.
The cast of You Can’t Take It With You consists of: Caylee Gaston as Penelope Sycamore, Christiann Sapp as Essie Carmichael, Victoria Garsow as Rheba, Cannon Adler as Paul Sycamore, Jesse McKee as Mr. De Pinna, Ramiro Gonzalez as Ed Carmichael, Hunter Caldwell as Donald, James Keller as Martin Vanderhof (Grandpa), Sarah McMillen as Alice Sycamore, Ray Myers as Wilbur C. Henderson, Kyle Ortman as Tony Kirby, Adam Warriner as Boris Kolenkhov, Aletha Phillips as Gay Wellington, Matt Hollingsworth as Mr. Anthony W. Kirby, Emme Moorehouse as Mrs. Miriam Kirby, Michael Spader as The Man, Austin Rushing as Third G Man/Mac, Daniel Miller as Second G Man/Jim, and Alexis Jennings as The Grand Duchess Olga Katrina.
You Can’t Take It With You will be performed February 5th-7th at 7:00 p.m. and February 8th at 2 p.m. at the Belton Middle School/Freshman Center Forum Theatre. Tickets are $5.00 for students and $6.00 for adults and can be purchased in advanced by going to our website bhspiratetheatre.weebly.com.
