The UVA drama department closes its 2012-13 season and busts open the doors of the much anticipated, state-of-the-art Ruth Caplin Theatre with the 1936 classic screwball comedy, You Can’t Take It With You. The players light up the shiny new stage with all the fireworks (literal and figurative) and hilarity that ensues when the daughter of a family of freethinking eccentrics falls in love with the son of a straight-laced banker.

Through 4/27 $8-14, 8pm. Ruth Caplin Theatre, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
