Aloha Performing Arts Company’s production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” opens Friday at Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” was written in 1941 by Joseph Kesselring, and enjoyed a successful run on Broadway, featuring Boris Karloff as Jonathan. The show ran for 1,444 performances. The 1944 movie version featured Cary Grant as Mortimer. It is a madcap, slapstick farce set in Brooklyn just before the United States entered World War II.

APAC’s production of the show will run Friday through Oct. 22 at the Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu, with Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinées at 2:30 p.m. Show tickets, season tickets, and Flex Passes are available online at www.apachawaii.org, or by phone from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
