Dysart’s theatre group, Wolf Creek Players, are announcing the audition time of Thursday, February 28 from 7 – 9 PM at Zion Lutheran Church in Dysart, for the upcoming spring production of Arsenic and Old Lace.  Performance dates for the upcoming production are April 18, 19, 20 and 21.
The story revolves areound Abby and Martha Brewster, Brooklyn’s most charitable sisters. They feed the hungry, give to the poor, devote themselves to the church, and poison lonely old men. When their nephew Mortimer, a famous theatre critic, discovers a body from their most recent act of benevolence, he becomes distraught and immediately tries to remedy the situation (this involves breaking up with his fiancée, Elaine). The sisters, without an ounce of guilt, try to calm Mortimer and inform him that the bodies (all 12 of them) are neatly buried in the cellar.To make matters worse, the Brewsters are visited by Mortimer’s murderous brother, Jonathan. Jonathan schemes to make the Brewster’s house the new base for his criminal activity and even attempts to blackmail the family upon discovering the bodies downstairs. Mortimer is faced with saving his family while keeping his aunts free from incarceration.
Seeking a cast of 14 characters for the play, the Wolf Creek Players encourage anyone interested to attend the audition or contact Nancy Havran at 319-476-3767 with questions.
