ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, Hale Centre Theatre, September 15 to November 18, 2014


You requested this marvelous gem and here it is! Two seemingly harmless little old ladies just love to play host to lonely little old men. But, how to explain the 13 dead bodies in the basement? Drink in the sheer genius of this treasured comedy that starred Cary Grant and Peter Lorre in the classic 1944 movie. Take care. You might die laughing!

"a charming production.  For a play that is over seventy years old Arsenic and Old Lace still elicits plenty of laughs and charm if done right, and the Hale Centre Theatre’s production has a capable cast and sure footed direction that incite enough chuckles and warmth amongst the silliness to show why this play has been a favorite for so many years." - Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway
