OCP’s Production of ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’
February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come out to see the Orange Community Players put on ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’, a hilarious black comedy that finds newspaper critic Mortimer Brewster in quite the predicament. He’s just a normal, run-of-the-mill guy who is anxious to marry his fiancé (the girl-next-door and a minister’s daughter) Elaine. But standing solidly between Mortimer and matrimonial bliss is the wackiest, weirdest family tree that ever grew! His two sweet aunts have developed murder as their favorite hobby. Out of a twisted sense of sympathy, they regularly poison lonely old men with a mixture of arsenic and elderberry wine and then bury them in the cellar.
Come and watch as this story unfolds and we see Mortimer try to thwart the police, conceal a corpse, curtail anymore killing, and convince Elaine that a wedding with a man who is drowning in such a murky gene pool is a good idea!
Thursday and Friday are regular performances.
Saturday night is Dinner Theater featuring a buffet before showtime.
Sunday is a matinee.
