Don't Even Try

What happens when the daughter of a crazy, lovable clan of eccentrics gets engaged to a very nice young man? When Alice Sycamore gets engaged to Tony Kirby, of course there's a dinner at the Sycamore house. It comes complete with a ballet dancing sister, a mother who paints and writes awful plays and a grandpa who espouses the family's defining belief that people should only do what they like to do. He's also never paid his income taxes. George S. Kaufman pulled these ingredients together in his Pulitzer-prize winning play You Can't Take It with You, and whether they're making you laugh or making you want to call your mom, you'll like the Sycamores. The show is at the Plano Children's Theatre, 1301 Custer Road in Plano. Tickets are $7 advance and $9 at the door. For more information, call 972-422-2575 or visit
