Fall Production: You Can't Take It With You
November 15 & 16
Sweet-natured Alice Sycamore falls for banker’s son Tony Kirby. But when she invites her snooty prospective in-laws to dinner to give their blessing to the marriage, Alice’s peculiar extended family -- including philosophical grandfather Martin Vanderhof, hapless fledgling ballerina sister Essie, and fireworks enthusiast father, Paul -- might be too eccentric for the staid Kirbys.
This special liturgy is in remembrance of Mount alumnae, family, and friends. Open to our community to attend, we welcome you to submit the names of loved ones you would like remembered as part of this mass.
