throwback thursday: you can't take it with you

Our next Throwback Thursday is one of a tradition Pacific Theatre held for years of the summer emerging artist production. Produced in partnership with Theatre at TWU (now SAMC), it featured that season's company apprentices and a host of acting students, new graduates, and other promising performers who had not yet made the leap to professional careers. In May of 2008, the show was YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU featured a huge cast of talented actors and told the story of the Vanderhof-Sycamore family, a group that seems completely unaware of the Great Depression happening all around them. Instead, they dance, make plays, music, and babies, and write revolutionary tracts. Everyone has at least three quirky hobbies and somehow, no one seems to feel the need to work. Everyone is blissfully happy until, of course, Alice brings home her all-too-ordinary Wall Street boyfriend.
