PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- "You Can't Take It With You," a comedic play performed three times this past weekend, was dedicated in memory of a Port Chester High School teacher who died on Oct. 20.
Claudia Begazo-Hyland, 44, taught Spanish and never missed a high school production, according to Josh Tenzer, drama coach and special education teacher. "She'd bring her kids,'' Tenzer said. "I miss her."
The three-act comedy, Port Chester's first fall production in 10 years, was written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
The high school production debuted Thursday Nov. 19 with evening shows on Friday and Saturday.
"You Can't Take it With You" introduces audience members to the freethinking Sycamore family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dinner on the wrong night.
The main cast was comprised of 19 Port Chester High School students:
Tenzer said the script is fairly complicated, with fast-moving conversations, making him a little worried about how well the play would fare during rehearsals two weeks beforehand. But the student performers shined and were well-received by hundreds of parents and students.
