To Open On Halloween Night & Run
October 31-November 9

 The Joliet Drama Guild proudly opened their 76th season with “You Can’t Take It With You,” by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart.  The beloved comedy about the Sycamore family will open on Halloween night.  Show dates were October 31, November 1, 7, and 8 at 8 pm, and November 2 and 9 at 2 pm inside the Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park Theatre at 201 W. Jefferson.

Director  Marty Kaspar and Assistant Director Brenda Hahn brought together a group of wonderful actors to tickle your funny bone.  They were assisted in this endeavor by Producer Jan Novotny, Stage Manager Martin Jamison, Props Mistress Tina Matriciano, and Joe Christopher helping backstage.

 The story centered on Alice Sycamore who is love with Tony Kirby, yet Alice is reluctant to let Tony’s family meet her family, for the Sycamores are an eccentric clan of fierce individuals, each pursuing their own unusual interests with uncommon zeal. Led by tax-evading Grandpa, the Sycamores see no reason to conform to anyone else’s idea of “normal”.
