Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene — his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure — but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé — all while trying to keep his own sanity as well. ARSENIC & OLD LACE will run October 11, 13 & 14 at The Rex Theatre in Galax.  ***Please note –  ALL OPENING NIGHT TICKETS for Thursday, October 11th are $15.00 and include a pre-show reception starting at 6pm at Chestnut Creek School of the Arts and the performance at 7:30pm that evening.

The New River Bell Ensemble has launched a fundraising campaign to purchase additional handbell octave sets. Their current set of bells was purchased through generous donations from the Grayson County Community Theatre and individuals throughout the Twin Counties. In order to expand their repertoire and accommodate the growing roster of ringers, the Ensemble needs to add  octave sets of handbells. The goal is to raise $20,000.  Donors at the $250 level and above may dedicate a bell with an engraved sentiment on the bell handle.
