What happens when the eccentric, rule-defying (and maybe just plain wackadoodle) Sycamore family is introduced to the high society parents of their daughter’s fiancé? Anything but a quiet evening with the in-laws.

In spite of the ballet pirouettes, xylophone solos, snake collecting, and basement pyrotechnics, this madcap yet tight-knit family offers proof that love and laughter can lead to happiness, even in the hardest of times. A hilarious, heartwarming, and life-affirming classic comedy.

 You Can't Take It With you runs approximately two hours and fifteen minutes, including one intermission.
