EHS Theater Season Opens With Comedy
The Emporia High School Theater Department will open the 2015-16 season this month with the performance of a classic comedy, You Can’t Take It With You. Performances are scheduled at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9 and 10, in the EHS Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets will be sold at the door. EHS students with a student ID can attend free.
Theater director Megan Sturm provided this description of the play:
“Sweet-natured Alice Sycamore falls for her boss’s son Tony Kirby. But when she invites her snooty prospective in-laws to dinner to give their blessing to the marriage, Alice’s peculiar family — including philosophical grandfather Martin Vanderhof, ballerina sister Essie and fireworks enthusiast father, Paul– might be too eccentric for the prim and proper Kirbys. There is an inevitable clash of classes and lifestyles which ultimately leads to changing the lives of the Kirby family.
