QHS: Arsenic and Old Lace
Thursday, Feb. 14 - Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7:30 pm at the Quincy Senior High Theatre The QHS theatre department will open 2019 with this well-known farce. The comedy takes place in Brooklyn, New York during the 1940s at the home of the Brewster family. Mortimer Brewster, played by senior Josef Lawler, has a steady job at a NYC newspaper, he's newly engaged and returns home to tell his sweet spinster aunts, played by seniors Olivia Wathen and Makayla Franklin, of his engagement. Home is a bit chaotic with a brother who believes to be Teddy Roosevelt, played by senior Joe Culp, a maniacal brother, Jonathan, played by senior JT Atwood, and a few uncovered secrets about his two dear aunts. Between a mysterious doctor, played by senior Keegan Carrow, a suspicious fiancé, played by sophomore Heather Salmons, and seniors Brad Eston, Ben Makins and sophomore Ryan Shoaff as the zany cops, this uproarious murder farce will have the audience rolling. The production is under the direction of Meghan Buckley and junior, Jaelyn Ehrhardt, will serve as the show's student director.
Tickets are available by calling the QHS music department at 217-224-3774.
