Get ready to laugh, laugh, laugh. ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ by Joseph Kesserling is set to premier Oct. 7 at The Rose. This farcical comedy introduces you to the Brewster sisters and their zany, maniacal family. Can you imagine two sweet spinster aunts who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers, a nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, another nephew who is a diabolical murderer and a third nephew who is in the midst of planning his wedding to a minister’s daughter. You don’t have to use too much imagination as this play with all its humor unfolds quickly on stage.
The cast of ‘Arsenic’ features actors from six central Georgia counties. Some of them are making their debut at The Rose. Kristy Calhoun and Joy Smith are directing the play. Mark your calendars now for a fun evening or afternoon of entertainment between Oct. 7 and 16.
