Terrace Little Theatre's 60th Anniversary Revival of Joseph Kesselring's "Arsenic and Old Lace" Opens Tomorrow December 5th

Terrace Little Theatre's 60th anniversary revival of Joseph Kesselring's "Arsenic and Old Lace" opens tomorrow December 5th at the McColl Playhouse.

A classic stage show set in the 1930's sees Abby and Martha Brewster, two compassionate and well-meaning elderly women, trying to make a difference in their community. While their intentions are altruistic, their methods are somewhat misguided and unorthodox as they invite lonely old men into their hilariously tangled web. Their web becomes even more tangled and twisted with an unexpected family reunion.

Don't miss our 60th anniversary season opener! Show time is 8:00 pm with no late seating. Tickets are $18 and are available at Uniglobe Courtesy Travel.
