ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
Come to the show!
LATTE Theater, the LaGrange Area Teen Theater Ensemble presents Arsenic and Old Lace.
We hope you will join us for this mad cap comedy adventure! Arsenic and Old Lace has dazzled audiences since 1941. It is one of the longest running Broadway plays. There is plenty of witty dialogue, lots of funny slapstick and physical humor, and quite a few wild plot developments.
Crazy runs in the family… it practically gallops! Picture yourself coming home to visit your darling elderly aunts – and discover they have a penchant for murder as a “community service”. With a recipe for poisoned wine, and a room to rent, the possibilities are endless. The “graveyard” in the basement is swiftly filling.
Add; the naïve, successful, confirmed bachelor of a nephew, the sweet, spunky girl next door, and… a brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt!
Just when you think it can’t get any crazier, a long absent a psychopathic sibling arrives with her alcoholic plastic surgeon from a mental institution. What could possibly go wrong?
The LATTE Teens have outdone themselves once again! We hope you enjoy seeing the original “twisted sisters” in this lethally dosed cocktail of humor. So, take a moment and let time stand still. Let the cares of the world fall away. Forget your worries and responsibilities. Embrace this cantankerous adventure as our talented teens transport you to a comedic web of intrigue and suspense.
