Elderberry Wine, Anyone?

Mortimer is tied up so Jonathan and Dr. Einstein can permanently silence him in order to use the Brewster home as the headquarters for their criminal activities.

Anyone familiar with the 1944 hilarious black comedy film Arsenic & Old Lace starring Carey Grant knew they were in for a treat upon learning that Garden City High School thespians were bringing the eccentric characters to life on the high school theatre stage. A more entertaining production would be very hard to find; from the beautiful set design, to the costumes and flawless delivery, audience members were delighted from start to finish.

As an added bonus for Garden City’s senior citizens, the Garden City Teachers Association (GCTA) provided a free buffet dinner to nearly 100 residents who signed up for the dinner and a special performance of the show. Many thanks to the GCTA and the dozen volunteer teachers who served these seniors a delicious meal. The district also wishes to congratulate the talented cast and crew, producer Steve Mayo, director Angela McLaughlin and all the parents who supported the show.
