Howard County Times

Marriotts Ridge High School is proud to present its fall production, “You Can’t Take It With You,” on Nov. 15 -17, at 7 p.m. each night with a matinee performance on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m.

This whimsical comedy follows the romance of Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby as they explore what can only be described as the “madness of sanity.” This is a heartfelt story about the importance of acceptance and living life to the fullest. Tickets are priced $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

Prior to the matinee presentation on Sunday, an Afternoon Tea will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Commons area. Freshly-brewed herbal and black teas will be served along with a delectable selection of sweet and savory treats made by the school’s Culinary Arts Department.

Tickets for the tea are $10 and must be purchased in advance.

In addition to the tea and treats, ticket holders for the matinee will receive a handmade tea cup. Only 70 tickets will be sold and teacup selection is in the order of arrival. Reservations are required and no tickets will be sold at the door.
