You think your family is crazy?

Come meet the eccentric, artistic, creative and zany Sycamore family in the Mercer Island High School Drama department's winter play, "You Can't Take It With You," by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. Alice Sycamore is in love with Tony Kirby, but when the two families meet for the first time, chaos ensues.

A famous American comedy, this play includes ballerinas, a cat, government agents, an explosives inventor, a Russian dance instructor, a scatterbrained artist and writer, uptight parents, a pianist, and a carefree, tax-evading grandpa.

Shows run Jan. 26-28 and Feb. 2-4 at 7:30 p.m. in the MIHS Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
