Tickets Are Still Available for Fr. Scheid Players' Production of the Broadway Comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace"

The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will close their 34th season with Arsenic and Old Lace. The Broadway comedy 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. Come and enjoy the fun!

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 group’s 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.

Performance dates are:         

Friday, April 4 at 8:00 pm
