The St. Peter’s Players will have a staged reading of the romantic comedy “You Can’t Take It With You” on Sunday, February 12th. “You Can’t Take it With You” ran on Broadway for several years in the 1930s. In 1939 it was performed as a radio play; later, it was made into a movie with Jimmie Stewart.
Returning actors from previous shows include Jim Frieman, Ted Hardie, Sue Mitchell, Angelo Castalucci, Susan Parsons, and Richard Talavera, along with Su Boocock, Violet Benesh, and Bryce Abramson. New to the proceedings are Lori Sibun-Handler, John McGill, Timothy Hpole, Alejandro Chen, Laura Ild, and Deborah Runyeon. Peter Hutchinson and other members will be creating the sound effects.
The play was written by Kaufman and Hart, and is directed by Neva Hutchinson.
The reading will take place in the Parish Hall at 6:30. Munchies and wine available. Suggested donation is $8.

The St. Peters Players started in 2015, with the youth at St. Peters providing a Supper Show. Actors presented memorized scenes to much acclaim, after a lavish dinner by the Men’s Group was served. The following year, in 2016, the Players produced a reading of “Countess Cathleen” by William Butler Yeats. This drama was well-received.
A packed house for the Supper show!
