Groton-Dunstable Drama Students Present Arsenic and Old Lace
Since the start of the fall semester, Drama Guild has been working on their production of Arsenic and Old Lace, a comedy by Joseph Kesselring. The cast and crew consist of fourteen actors, three stage managers, and many more backstage crew, set builders, painters, and costume designers. The show follows Mortimer Brewster (Alex Sullivan, ‘17), a Brooklyn drama critic who discovers that his two sweet, charming, elderly aunts, Abby and Martha (Jill Carleton, ‘17, and Lauren Maloomian, ‘20), may be hiding an interesting secret. To add to the peculiarities of his family, Mortimer’s brother thinks that he is Teddy Roosevelt, and no one in the family ever mentions his other brother, who has not been seen in Brooklyn in years.
The play is being directed by Mrs. Leung, an English teacher at GD Middle School, and student directed by junior Celeste Vandermillen. Performances are on Friday, November 4 at 7 P.M. and Saturday, November 5 at 2 P.M. and 7 P.M. Tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $10 general admission. Shows are in the GDRHS Black Box Theatre. See you there!
