Arsenic and Old Lace

Elizabeth Simoneau
Everyone who has auditioned for theatre knows the nerves and passion for different roles.
“I don’t think of auditioning as actually auditioning, I think of it as I’ve already gotten that role, that I’ve already succeeded, and this is just the first day of learning the lines. I think of everyone in the audience as my friends because they are, because it’s one theatre, one family,” junior Gavrik Paul said.
This semester’s production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” will premiered November 3rd at 7:00 and 4:00, November 4th at 2:00 and 7:00, and November 5th at 7:00. In this play, you will see Leah Holt as Elaine, William John as Mortimer, Gavrik Paul as Teddy, Alex Lensgraf and Maggie Keener as Abby (see more detailed cast list below). Rehearsals started September 5 and continued through Spirit Week. “Arsenic and Old Lace” is about a newspaperman named Mortimer who takes a quick trip home to visit his aunts in their nursing home. It is there that he finds out that they have a hobby: killing old, unhappy men and hiding their bodies in the cellar.
