Morinville – The Community Cultural Centre stage was full of high school actors Wednesday night, the culmination of many months work learning and perfecting George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s 1936 comedy You Can’t Take It With You. The two-hour production tells the story of a young man from a snobbish upper class family who marries a woman from an eccentric family. A total of 20 student actors took part in the production.

Below is a selection of photos from Wednesday night’s performance.
