Miguel Alves, Editor

Centreville High School’s very own theater department is putting on a show this weekend in the school’s Skip Maiden Theater – the 1936 comedic play You Can’t Take It with You, written by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. In accordance with Theatre Centreville’s usual schedule, the play will show on three different days in November: Friday the fifteenth, Saturday the sixteenth, and Sunday the seventeenth. The matinee performances are Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 PM, while the evening shows are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM. All tickets are ten dollars and can be purchased at the door or online at Theatre Centreville’s website.

According to Christian Coleman, who plays the role of Paul Sycamore, father, husband, and tinkerer who manufactures fireworks in the family’s basement, “You Can’t Take It with You is about a very dysfunctional family in New York during the 1930s.” Coleman says that he is both nervous about this weekend’s performance and anxious to get started.

The Centreville Sentinel will be posting a review sometime next week.
