Winner for Best Ensemble Cast 2009

Congrats to the cast and crew of You Can't Take It With Your for our 2009 Artistic Director Achievement Award for Best Ensemble Cast (Comedy or Drama). It was great to see most of the cast at the award show. I was honored to share the stage with all of you. This award would not be possible if it wasn't for John Barker our incredible director.
