Xavier, Brophy to put on spring comedy ‘You Can’t Take it with You’

The Xavier/Brophy Theatre will present four performances of “You Can’t Take It With You” this spring.

Performance dates will be 7 p.m. Thursday, March 3, Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5,  and a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 5.

The play, which premiered on Broadway in 1936, is the story of a Bohemian family and a few days of their exuberantly chaotic life, according to a press release. Recently revived on Broadway, it is a delightful three-act comedy by playwrights George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.

Janice Robillard, who is the head of Xavier’s drama department, will direct the production.

All performances will be held in the Kemper and Ethel Marley Theater in the Virginia G. Piper Performing Arts Center on Xavier College Preparatory’s campus.

The ticket price will be $10 for all patrons and may be purchased online at www.xcp.org or at the door.  There will be general seating only.
