MELBOURNE, FLA. — The dark comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace, is Florida Tech’s spring College Players production. Performances will be on March 28 and 29, and
April 3, 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. in the Gleason Performing Arts Center, on campus.
Best known for the charming 1944 movie adaptation starring Cary Grant, Arsenic and Old Lace portrays the mishaps of the crazy Brewster family. Two adorable
elderly aunts take it upon themselves to put lonely old gentlemen out of their misery by poisoning them with elderberry wine. The sanest of their nephews,
Mortimer, finds one of the dead bodies in the house and tries to protect his hapless aunts.
In the College Players production, the aunts are played by Angelica Rodriguez and Siobhan Ireland; Kevin Lundy plays Mortimer. Christina Moody directs.
Tickets, available at the door, cost $10 for general admission; $5 for ages 55 and older, and those with a military or student IDs; and $3 for Florida Tech
students, faculty, and staff with ID. For more information, contact Steven Tucker or College Players at (321) 674-8767, or visit http://cp.fit.edu.
