“Arsenic and Old Lace”

The Churchill County High School Theatre 2,3,4 class will present Joseph Kesselring’s 1939 comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace” on Nov. 21, 22 and 23 at 7p.m. in the CCHS Theatre.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for CCHS students, $3 for younger students and senior citizens.

In this “absurdly gruesome yet gloriously funny comedy,” we meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers and the antics of their crazed nephews — one who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, one who looks like Boris Karloff, and another who’s a newspaper drama critic.

Glen Perazzo is directing this comedy.

‘A Ceremony of Carols’

The Churchill County High School Music Department presents “A Ceremony of Carols; A Christmas Celebration” on Thursday, Dec. 6 and Friday, Dec. 7 beginning at 6:30 p.m. each night.

“A Ceremony of Carols” will take place in the parish hall at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on Tedford Lane in Fallon. Tickets are $25 each or a table for eight for $200. All seats are reserved. A silent auction and raffle round out this memorable event.

Tickets may be purchased at the Churchill County High School Office at One Greenwave Circle. Tickets went on sale Tuesday. Don’t wait! This event is likely to sell out.
