Spring Production of Arsenic and Old Lace

Curtain Call Theatre Company will be presenting its spring production of Arsenic and Old Lace from Thursday May 30th to Sunday June 2nd.  All performances will be at the Round Barn.

This classic comedy by Joseph Kesselring tells the story of two spinster sisters who have a highly unusual way of removing gentlemen guests from their living room, the delusional nephew who lives with them, and another, more normal, nephew, who begins to discover some of the goings on in the house on the night he brings his new fiance over. Even more complications ensue with the arrival of another nephew of truly diabolical intent and a plastic surgeon of doubtful character.

Performances on Thursday to Saturday will be dinner theater shows.  The barn and cash bar will open at 5 pm each night with dinner at 6 pm.  Tickets are $25 which includes a complete dinner with a choice of steak, chicken kreps or vegetarian entrée, and coffee or tea.  Adult beverages may be purchased at the bar.

A non-meal matinee will be held on Sunday, June 2nd, at 2 pm, with the barn opening at 1:30 pm.  Tickets for the matinee are $12 each.

All tickets must be purchased in advance at the Wooden Nickel, 112 W. McPherson.
