After the rousing success of "West Side Story," St. George Musical Theater continues its season with the classic comedy, "Arsenic and Old Lace." The play is a farcical black comedy about the seemingly innocent spinster Brewster twins who take to killing lonely old men with their homemade elderberry wine. The hilarity continues with their nephew Mortimer, a drama critic, going crazy himself over his upcoming nuptials and who must also deal with nutty brothers, one who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, the other a recipient of some strange plastic surgery. "There is a reason this comedy is a perennial favorite," noted Executive Director Bruce Bennett, "its band of kooky characters never goes out of style." The play is directed by popular director/actor Varlo Davenport who will have his talented wife Andrea by his side creating some wonderful costumes. "With all that's going on in the world right now, we need to take some time for good-natured laughter, and "Arsenic and Old Lace" is a perfect elixir for those who need some comedy in their life," said Managing Director Dan Olsen. Tickets for the show can be purchased by visiting www.sgmusicaltheater.com or by calling 1-866-967-8167with a special season ticket package being offered for a limited time. "Arsenic and Old Lace" runs from Oct. 1 -31 on Thurs, Fri., Sat, and Mon with two matinee performances -- including a special Halloween matinee on closing night. For questions call 435-628-8755.
