Virtual Designer Presentations for "You Can't Take It With You"
If you missed our behind-the-scenes look at how a production is created, you can still watch a video recording of the virtual presentation by the designers of "You Can't Take It With You." Director Craig A. Miller and his artistic team had been working together since January to create the look and feel of this award-winning comedy. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and all meetings and rehearsals ceased. On April 9, Craig and company showcased their designs, from scenic to costumes, sound, lights and more.
