This weekend, the “Majestic Players” will present the play ARSENIC & OLD LACE.​

The shows are this Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at the Majestic Theater. Tickets are $15.00 and will be available at the door.  

Written by Joseph Kesselring, the play is set in a lovely old brownstone in Brooklyn in the early 1940’s where we meet the charming and “innocent” ladies who populate their cellar with the corpses of socially and religiously acceptable roomers. We see the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of another nephew who is a homicidal maniac—while rooting for the other nephew who fears he is going mad!

The show is directed by Lisa Gillespie. Assistant Director is Dan Mock and the Producer is Sandy Kost-Sterner.
