WHITNEY - Lake Whitney Arts Association members are excited about the upcoming production of Arsenic and Old Lace, and they say the production will bring more talented men to LWAA stage than ever before.

Cast member Alan Newton has been involved in theatre since kindergarten and has performed in plays with his church, at Tarleton State University and with Lake Whitney Arts. Alan joined the organization during the production of Greater Tuna, and he has become a valuable member both on and off the stage.

Ed Sanders is fast becoming a staple of the Lake Whitney Arts arsenal of talent. He has directed and acted in several shows and has a background in professional and community theater. Ed serves on the board of directors and as chairman of the play reading and selection committee. He is set to direct the next show, Wait Until Dark.

Dan Allen is quite a find, according to organizers. Not only is he a talented actor, but he and his wife, Candy, have also been "behind-the-scenes angels." Dan has worked with a group of old west gunfighters and starred in several independent zombie films. He is always willing to help backstage, build a set, repair the building or even mow the grass.

Arsenic and Old Lace opens with a dinner theater on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m., with additional performances on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17-18 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 19 at 2 p.m.

Tickets will be available for purchase at The Movie Shop in Whitney, Kitty's Lakeside Barber Shop, the Lake Whitney Chamber of Commerce, or online at
