Come Enjoy a Classic Broadway Comedy and Help Support the Work of the Catholic Youth Apostolate!

The very talented Fr. Scheid Players will present the comedy, “Arsenic and Old Lace” at Incarnate Word Academy this Friday, April 4 at 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday, April 5 and 6 at 3 pm. Ticket are available at the door for $12 each.

The Broadway farce, a classic of American theater, features everyman Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic, who must deal with his crazy family which includes his two spinster aunts who provide a service to lonely old men by poisoning them, one brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother who now looks like Boris Karloff and has a dead body to hide. A girlfriend and the police also help keep Mortimer’s plate full.

The play features three priests, Fr. Terry Borgerding, Msgr. Norbert Ernst, and Fr. Bill Wigand, plus many talented adult lay people from the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  This year marks the Fr. Scheid Players' 34th anniversary of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.
