SACT (Southside Area Community Theatre) & Mitchell’s Restaurant presents Arsenic & Old Lace

Enjoy a play about a dramatic critic who comes home to become engaged to his love, only to find out that his two sweet dear old aunts have developed a bad habit of poisoning lonely old men. They feel what they are doing a service putting these men out of their misery. They even bury them in the cellar complete with funeral services. Fortunately, his brother is a perfect patsy since he already thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt – the murders could be pinned on him and he live out his days in Happy Dale sanitarium. Unfortunately, the other devious brother makes an untimely return home with his drunken doctor friend. They too have been on a killing spree.

This play is full of comedy and will delight all. Many local celebs are making appearances in this play – Liz & Charlotte Walters, Jim Hausbrouck, Tom Forrester, Kelly Forrester, Pete Smith, Richard Aviles, Joe McMillan and many many more! This play is directed, organized and kept on track by Christy Aviles (Director) and Mary Sydney Gilley (Stage Manager) just to mention a few. Without the kindness of Mitchell’s – we would be doing this all on the street! Can’t forget the blood, sweat and tears of Tilly Conley (Producer) and Bev Boyko and their crew of volunteers!

I STRONGLY urge you to come – the talent is amazing – It will be a great show.
