A Night At The Theater in Woodhaven

by

The comedic stage play “Arsenic and Old Lace” will be performed by The First String Players on the weekend of January 8th at St. Luke’s Church in Woodhaven. 

The classic macabre comedy,  written by Joseph Kesselring, made its’ debut on Broadway in 1941 with Boris Karloff in a supporting role.  A film version was made that same year, but not released until 3 years later, after the show had closed.  The film version starred Cary Grant and was directed by Frank Capra.

This local production is directed by Paul Morisi and produced by Theresa McLoughlin.  It will be performed at St. Luke’s (87-34 85th Street) on:

Friday – January 8 @ 7pm
Saturday – January 9 @ 7pm
Sunday – January 10 @ 3pm

Admission is only $10.00.  Please note that tickets will ONLY be sold at the door, and it’s general seating.
