Audition for ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ | Kitsap Week

Boris Karloff starred in the opening night production of this play. Cary Grant starred in the film version.

Here’s your chance to become part of the history of “Arsenic and Old Lace,” of which the New York Times once wrote, “[It’s] so funny that none of us will ever forget it.”

Auditions are July 22, noon to 4 p.m., and July 23, 7-9:30 p.m., at Western Washington Center for the Arts, 521 Bay St. , Port Orchard.

Callbacks, if needed, will be on July 26 from 7-9:30 p.m.

Carl Olson directs the play, which takes the Center for the Arts stage Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 28 to Oct. 21. The cast consists of 11 men and three women.

Auditions will consist of improvisation exercises and cold readings from the script. A rehearsal schedule will be available, so be prepared to note any conflicts. Plan to attend both days.
