Auditions for ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ to be Held



By Coastal Breeze News Staff

The Island Theater Company (ITC) will hold auditions for Joseph Kesselring’s “Arsenic and Old Lace,” Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 2-3, beginning at 6:30 PM. Auditions will be held at the Centennial Bank location at 615 Elkcam Circle on the second floor.

Those unable to attend the scheduled audition dates can contact ITC directly at 239-394-0080 to arrange another time.

Sponsored by Clausen Properties, “Arsenic and Old Lace” is the story of Abby and Martha Brewster, two charming and charitable sisters who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers. They have lived in their genteel Brooklyn neighborhood in the family home for years with Teddy, their brother, who believes he is President Teddy Roosevelt.

All is right in the world until Mortimer, their nephew, discovers a body in the window seat and believes Teddy has killed him. Further complications ensue when the murderous Jonathan Brewster arrives home with his sniveling accomplice Dr. Einstein in tow. When Jonathan learns that his darling aunts have killed 12 men, he is incensed — they’re challenging his own record of murders.

ITC is looking for actors and actresses with a number of potential male cast members ages 25-80. Show dates are April 9-18.
