     The Illegitimate Theater Company in conjunction with Family Morale, Welfare and Recreation will present their production of a stage and screen classic:  Joseph Kesselring's, "Arsenic and Old Lace".  This 1941 play is a black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, New York.  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 Teddy Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home, and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery by an alcoholic accomplice Dr. Einstein to conceal his identity.  Show dates are 2, 3, 9 and 10 Nov at 7 pm.  There will be two matinees on 4 and 11 Nov at 2 pm.  All shows will be at Murr Community Center on Fort Huachuca.  Tickets are $15.  For tickets and information please call Amber or Brenda at (520) 533-2404.
