(Le Mars) -- The show opens this week and the 14 person cast has been working hard under the

direction of Margaret Britton and Donna Hentges to bring to life this classic script, in the 1940's

living room of two elderly sisters.  Sisters who, according to Britton, are very charitable.

The sisters are being played by Hilma Person and Mary Puetz, "Teddy" is being portryed by

Jeff Neary.  The show gets even more complicated when more nephews get involved, one a

theater critic played by Micheal Phipps and one who just escaped from a mental institution,

played by Larry Brangwin.  A twist on the casting for the Postal Playhouses "Arsenic and Old

Lace" performance is that the doctor whose in charge of the mental patient is being played

by a woman, but is written for a man.  This role of Dr. Einstein is being played by Donna

Muilenburg.

Britton shared that the show was done by Le Mars Community theater years ago, and 2 people

are back for a second go.
