River Theater Company of Charlestown, N.H. presents the classic comedy “You Can’t Take it With You” in the Charlestown Town Hall Theater, Saturday, April 29, Friday, May 5, and Saturday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m.; and on Sunday, May 7 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, a Family Pass for two parents and children for $25. Tickets can be purchased at the door, at the Jiffy Mart in Charlestown, N.H., Marro Home Center in Claremont, N.H., Joanie Joan’s Baked Goods Co. in Walpole, N.H., and at Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls.

This production is appropriate for ages 12 and up.

Fireworks, Russians, snakes, visitors drop in and never leave, guests who show up on the wrong day, questionable ballet routines, unfinished scripts, and FBI agents arresting everyone in the house: This is just a typical day at the Sycamore house. It’s all in good fun, and there is plenty of laughter to go around.
