You Can't Take It With You October 22, 2012

Preview Article: You Can't Take It With You
Rebekah Love

Performances of the Marshall Civic Player's production of You Can't Take It With You are fast approaching. The show's cast displays the breadth of talent and experience on the stage, ranging from first year actors to one married couple with sixty years experience. Georgia Marsh (playing Grand Duchess Olga Katrina) stated her reason for becoming a part of the show as "theater is a wonderful way to have fun. It's great to be part of a team production. You do, as a cast, become a family." And in this show that is all about family, the cast has certainly drawn together to make a unique family of their own.

Georgia and her husband John are only one example of a family coming together to be part of the production. Jennifer Delaney and her son Daniel are also in the show, and Jennifer says she is "thrilled to be sharing the stage with her son." Kyra Hill, who plays Alice Sycamore, doesn't have any family members in the show, but says that she can still relate to that aspect of the play. "My family is huge. My dad is a really big jokester and all four of us siblings are... interesting. It's fun and I love them, but it can be crazy."

Although the characters are all slightly off kilter, at the end of the day, they care for one another in a way that carries a resounding message. Our families will never be perfect, and neither will we for that matter, but at the end of the day family is what really matters. Just as the cast was drawn to the show because of that notion, audiences too will be taken in by the charm of You Can't Take it With You.

The show is directed by Christine Andrews and produced by Jane Reid. Other crew members include costumier Ann Kamm and technical director Michael Peck.

Performances of You Can't Take It With You will be held in the Franke Center for the Arts, located on 214 E. Madison Street, in Marshall on November 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th at 8:00 p.m. and on the 11th and 18th at 2:30 p.m. For more information call (269)-781-3335.
