A smash hit in New York, it opened on Broadway in 1941, with tours on the road and on the screen (starring Cary Grant and Boris Karloff), this famous comedy success remains one of the most popular plays in the world. Charming and innocent aunties Abby and Martha Brewster populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” widowers. They indulge the antics of their nephew Mortimer, a New York dramatic critic, a second nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and the activities of a third who bears a striking resemblance to a horror movie villain. Arsenic and Old Lace is a must-see!
Camelot’s production of Arsenic and Old Lace stars Shirley Patton as Abby Brewster, Brandy Carson as Martha Brewster, Brian O’Connor as Teddy Brewster, Don Matthews as Jonathan Brewster and Tyler Ward as Mortimer Brewster. Paul R. Jones directs the play and is joined by Rob Hirschboeck as Dr. Einstein, Jack Seybold as Rev. Dr. Harper, C.H. Chou as Officer O’Hara, Tim Kelly as Officer Brophy and Brianna Gowland as Mortimer’s fiancé Elaine Harper.
