The performing arts group, Burbank First Academy, at the Burbank First United Methodist Church, is presenting the Burbank First United Methodist Players (BUMPs) in Arsenic and Old Lace.
You will be welcomed to the Brewster Mansion, where insanity runs in the family. When the only sane family member, Mortimer, asks his sweetheart, Elaine, to marry him, all seems normal — until Mortimer finds an old man dead in the window seat.
If that isn’t crazy enough, Mortimer discovers his two sweet old aunts, Abby and Martha, are responsible for poisoning the old man and putting him there. You see, it’s a hobby of his amiable aunts to kill lonely old men as a charitable act of kindness and mercy.
If that isn’t demented enough, welcome home Jonathan Brewster, the monstrous homicidal-maniac brother of Mortimer, and his plastic surgeon sidekick, Dr. Einstein. It is a fun, sweet, charming, INSANE comedy!
Arsenic and Old Lace runs Friday, August 1st and Saturday August 2nd at 7pm; Sunday, August 3rd at 2pm; and Friday, August 8th and Saturday, August 9th at 7pm.
Advance sale tickets are $15.00 per person and $10 student. Tickets are available online at www.burbankfirstacademy.com with reservations also being taken through the church office at 1-818-845-1531 ext. 109. Tickets at the door are $20. The performances are in Trever Hall at Burbank First United Methodist Church at 700 North Glenoaks Blvd., Burbank CA 91506.
