Arsenic and Old Lace

Come enjoy

An All-Time Classic

Come enjoy one of the most beloved comedies of all time, Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring. This will be the final stage show of the 2020 - 2021 Season so make sure to be there!

The Story

We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other nephew—these require no further description or amplification here. Arsenic and Old Lace is a must for all nonprofessionals, a ready-made comedy hit.

Well, dear, for a gallon of elderberry wine I take one teaspoon full of arsenic, then add half a teaspoon full of strychnine and then just a pinch of cyanide.
