New Scarsdale theatre company presents its first staged reading in the intimate and historic chapel of The Church of St. James the Less
Scarsdale, NY: Chill Bucket Productions presents a staged reading of Kaufman and Hart’s classic 1936 comedy, You Can’t Take It with You on June 22, 2019 at 8 pm. The 100-seat chapel venue, nestled amidst the 1851 stone church, gives the production a sense of home and nostalgia.
You Can’t Take It with You follows the lives of members of the Sycamore family, an eccentric clan living in New York City, their relationships with the zany characters they surround themselves with, and their interactions with the seemingly normal Kirby family. The Kirby’s are invited over for dinner when Tony Kirby, Jr. and Alice Sycamore strike up a workplace affair, and the madcap, idealistic comedy ensues, reinforcing the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy. “Office hours are from 12 to 1 with an hour off for lunch.” It appears the play’s Pulitzer Prize-winning author, George S. Kaufman, embraced this philosophy the most.
Directed by Jeff Rocco (Seattle native), the cast includes actors from Westchester, the Bronx and Long Island.
- Rob McEvily, Kevin Arthur, Michelle Moriarty, Dana Celestino, Justin Thomas, Rena Gavigan, Tom Weppler, Leah Wendt, Chris Nardi, Greg Weiss, Benna Strober, Jack McGuirk, Sean Coffey, Liz DiMeo, Margie McCabe, Liz Paldino, Kaitlyn O’Shea, and Allison Samuel
Stage Managed by Dakota Martin (Yonkers resident & Scarsdale employee); Co-produced by Jeff Rocco & Dakota Martin
