'Arsenic' Script Info Session Aug 2, Audition Aug. 5

Posted: Friday, July 6, 2018, 11:50am

Curtain Players Season 56 is under way with the script info session and open audition for Arsenic and Old Lace next on the event calendar.

The Arsenic and Old Lace script info session is set for Thursday August 2 at 6:30 PM with the open audition Sunday August 5 (registration at 6:30 PM, tryout at 7). Each event takes place at the 5691 Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021) playhouse.

Kate Tull directs the Joseph Kesselring script, with a preview staging Thursday October 18, and performances October 19-20, 26-28 and November 2-4. In this enduring comedy – first produced on Broadway in 1941 — a drama critic must deal with his eccentric family, including two sweet aunts who cheerfully poison elderly men with elderberry wine.

Stephen Elliot Moore is stage manager for Arsenic and Old Lace.

Tull and Moore are Curtain Players veterans, and worked together as director and stage manager, respectively, on Rabbit Hole in 2017, You Can't Take It With You in 2016, and Picnic in 2014.
