Conway Dinner Theater to present 'Arsenic & Old Lace'

Mark your calendars for another delightful play announced by the Conway Dinner Theater.

 

“Arsenic and Old Lace” is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the “Mayflower,” but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs.

In less than three weeks, Greenbrier will see this delightful play directed by our own Kim Norris of Wooster.

Many Greenbrier and Wooster players starring in the play are Travis Lindsay (playing Teddy Brewster), Tyler Sims (playing the roles of the Reverend Dr. Harper and Mr. Witherspoon), Frank Norris (playing Jonathan Brewster), Matthew Norris (understudy for Officer Klein) and Mandi Norris doing makeup. Joan Hanna of musical director fame on so many of the Conway Dinner Theater plays is doing some costume work for this production.

The sweet, charming, genteel Brewster sisters are known in their Brooklyn neighborhood for many charitable acts. The one charity that is not advertised is euthanizing old bachelors to die with smiles on their faces — elderberry wine spiked with arsenic is the preferred method.

The play has entertained generations of theater and movie audiences since its debut in 1939.

Join them for an evening of hilarity at the theater located in Conway, at 2201 Washington Ave., July 18-19, 25-26 and Aug. 1-2.

Watch for ticket information and photos coming soon.
