Columbia Entertainment Company to Produce: Arsenic and Old Lace
One of the local theaters is at it again! This time welcoming to the stage a classic; Arsenic and Old Lace. Performances are October 14-17, 21-24 and 28-31. The curtain for Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2:00 p.m. The box office opens approximately one hour prior to curtain. The house will open 30 minutes prior to curtain. Not familiar with the play? CEC’s synopsis is: Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan. (who strangely now resembles Boris Karloff) returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé — all while trying to keep his own sanity as well. Get tickets and see the show this month.
