Arsenic and Old Lace features a cast of 14, including Lea Hedrick as Abby, Helen Nafziger as Martha, Eric Hedrick as Teddy, Summer McGaffigan as Elaine, and Robb Zahm as Mortimer. J.P. Gulla is set designer; Mark Dowdy is lighting designer; Simone Cameon is costume designer, and Hailey Kubler serves as stage manager.
Directed by Kyle Legore, Joseph Kesselring’s play is a comedy classic. The story involves two charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; and the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. When Mortimer, their other nephew, returns home and learns of his aunts’ “hobby,” mayhem ensues.
