Take Me Along takes place in Centerville, Connecticut, in 1906 and its story begins with a triumph in journalism. Nat Miller, publisher of the Centerville Globe, has won a new fire engine for the town and its citizens celebrate its purchase by cheering him. Somewhat overcome by the honor, Nat wonders if he is truly as great as the people claim. His wife Essie, his sister Lily and the rest of his family insist, over his objections that he is. But his pride is tarnished when one of his advertisers condemns him because of the seductive and romantic poetry that his son has been reading to the advertiser's daughter. Amidst all this is the story of the ne'er-do-well brother-in-law who never met a boss nor a booze he could tolerate. Take Me Along is presented in concert as part of the York Theatre Company's Musicals in Mufti series.
