Arsenic & Old Lace In Performance

Friday, February 14 

Saturday, February 15

Sunday, February 16







Arsenic and Old Lace is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.

The Halloween Happening

The Canterville Ghost & The Vampire's Desire

Slide Show of Halloween Radio Plays

The Canterville Ghost
Walton Butterfield's dramatization of Oscar Wilde's famous story, The Canterville Ghost, provided the script for this show in the seminal radio series, Terror by Night.  Although the series aired for less than one year, historians assert that Terror by Night productions were original performance ideas for radio.  Terror by Night evolved into The Columbia Playhouse and ultimately into The Mercury Theater.  Orson Wells gained a great deal of fame and contempt for frightening the radio audience his production of  H.G. Wells tale, War of the Worlds The Canterville Ghost aired on the CBS radio network on May 24, 1936.


The Vampire's Desire
During the mid-1930’s , WJR - Detroit, Radio aired a weekly series titled The Hermit.   The series was so successful that operations moved to KMPC Los Angeles in 1940 where it enjoyed worldwide syndication until it ended in 1944.  The Vampire's Desire first aired on July 13, 1941.
