Yuba Charter School presents ‘You Can’t Take it with You’

It is a comedy/romance based on the Pulitzer prize-winning play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart – a fun story about two families, one zany and one conformist, who get together over an engagement – but it is also a rite of passage.

The play, which will be performed tonight and Saturday, is a Waldorf tradition: Kids who have been together for eight years present a play as their last group action before they separate and leave for high school.

Says Rosalind Parducci, who is an actress in the play, “The performance … is about doing your best, working as a team, and completing your elementary schooling with something worth remembering.”

Stretching out of their comfort zone and making strides in personal growth are the more philosophical reasons for putting on the play, in which 20 of the 23 members of the Yuba River Charter School’s eighth-grade class act. But while “You Can’t Take it with You,” directed by Maggie McKaig, has been a challenge for the students, it also has been lots of fun, and fun is what the audience should have, too. It is at the Off Center Stage in Grass Valley.

WHAT: “You Can’t Take It With You”

WHEN: Tonight and Saturday, 7 p.m.

WHERE: Off Center Stage (behind The Center for the Arts), 315 Richardson St., Grass Valley

ADMISSION: At the door; $5 for adults, $3 for children.

INFORMATION: Dominique, 272-3991
