Jordan Drama Club Presents 'You Can't Take It With You'
Please join the Jordan Drama Club as they present 'You Can't Take It With You'. This student-directed production is an American classic comedy that revolves around an avant-garde family of wannabe artists, fireworks makers, a patriarch who doesn't believe in income tax and an array of eccentric guests trailing in and out of their chaotic household. They may appear mad at first but when daughter Alice invites her boyfriend's rich, snobby parents to dinner we learn that it might be everyone else in the world that is mad. After all, money doesn't buy happiness and we all know you can't take it with you!  
Performances will be May 4-5 at 7:00 pm in the Jordan MPR. Tickets are $5 for students/$10 for adults and can be purchased the week prior at lunch in Hugh Center Court or at the door.
