Auditions for "Arsenic and Old Lace" will be held Monday, 5/22/17 and Tuesday5/23/17 from 7pm to 8:30pm at the San Leandro Museum Auditorium, 320 West Estudillo Avenue.

"Arsenic and Old Lace" by Joseph Kesselring, directed by Mark O'Neill, is one of America's funniest dark comedies.  Mortiner's two wacky aunts think its proper and humane to kill lonely elderly men with elderberry and arsenic and a touch of cyanide! A household of zany relatives and sidekicks bring their own insanity and mystery to the household.  Mortimer's lovely fiance (who lives next door), gets caught up in ways that tax her patience and love.  Hilarity ensues!
