You Can't Take It with You is a comedic play in three acts by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. The original production of the play premiered on Broadway in 1936, won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Dramaa nd was adapted for the screen as You Can't Take It with You, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director.

This is a story of a wacky family in New York where the daughter of the family, Alice is in love with the boss' son. These families from two different backgrounds are to meet clumsily on the wrong night, leading to an evening of chaos and the Department of Justice. Come see how this comedy ensues…


Welcome new and returning Drama Boosters! If you want to know what's happening with after-school theater at M-A you've come to the right place! Ever since kids have been doing theater at M-A there've been parents behind the scenes helping make it happen. We sew costumes, put up posters around town, bake brownies, sell tickets before shows, take publicity photos, feed hungry actors and techies during Tech Week, place notices in local newspapers, do fundraising and marketing, help build sets and SO MUCH MORE. On this site you can check out the rehearsal schedule for the current production, view sign-ups for various volunteer jobs, view the show posters and link to show photos from previous years, check out what will be On Stage Soon, and so on. 


If you've come to Drama Boosters because you want to volunteer, GREAT! We need you, your energy, your time, and your ideas. If your student is involved in the show you will be emailed links to editable sign-up pages for various jobs. If not, you can contact the webmaster directly to volunteer. Please remember to allow mail from madramaboosters@gmail.com to get through your spam filters otherwise you may miss something important. 

Drama Boosters also always begins the performing arts season at the start of a new school year with the Fall Drama Potluck, and in the late Winter we get together once again for the Spring Musical Potluck, and we often have parent parties when a show closes, as well. So keep your eyes open for those invitations!

Since 2010 Drama Boosters has had the opportunity to work with M-A drama teacher and director, Ms. Debra Jean Zwicker-Sobrepena, "Ms. Z" as the students call her, or just DJ. You can view DJ's bio here. Together with the incredible talents and hard work of dozens and dozens of enthusiastic M-A actors, techies and crew, Ms. Z has put on several very successful productions in the M-A PAC, which first opened the year before she arrived, starting with Pride & Prejudice in 2010. 

You can view posters and photos from prior productions by clicking on the "___Season" links on the left hand side of the page. 

By the way, we have Norm Abt, father of Zach Abt, actor extraordinaire, M-A '12, to thank for creating this site a few years ago.  Thanks, Norm!

Once again, welcome to Drama Boosters! We're glad you're here. You are an integral part of a great team effort here supporting M-A Theater!
