The classic Kaufman and Hart comedy, “You Can’t Take it with You” will be performed by the Fridley Drama program on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 16, 17 and 18 at the Fridley District Auditorium beginning at 7:00 pm.

The comedy which won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama revolves around the Sycamores' extended family. They represent an eccentric collection of people all living in the same house in New York City in the 1930’s.

At first the characters all seem to be a little crazy, but we soon discover that they are no more crazy than the rest of the world around them. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, as they learn about the crazy antics of the residents of the house, shows to Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question.

The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view.

Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress.

No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.

All tickets are General Admission and may be purchased beginning at 6:00 pm at the Fridley District Auditorium on the days of performance. Doors will open at 6:30 pm. Prices are $10 for Adults and $5 for Students and Seniors.

Retention and Destruction of Student Records

(b) graduates from school, or
(c) ages out of school.

 

The District will post on its website the school year records that are to be destroyed. If a student wants their last special education evaluation and IEP, they can contact the Special Education Department at 763-502-5025 for pickup. Student must show proper identification. If someone else will be picking up their special education record a Release of Information must be signed by the student and received by the District. Proper identification must be provided. For more information please contact the Special Education Department at 763-502-5025.

Fridley Public Schools is conducting a parent-community engagement survey in an effort to identify ways that the district can support parents in their children's education.  Invitation to the survey was emailed to parents with a link to the online survey.  The survey is anonymous and takes only a few minutes to complete.  District teachers ad support staff are also taking part in a similar survey that is aimed at gathering information that will be useful in determining ways to support school staff as they work with parents.  Both surveys will close on April 17, 2015.
