The Biloxi Little Theatre, founded in 1946, is an all-volunteer community theatre offering high quality entertainment. The playhouse is located in an historic building in of "Ole" Biloxi, and prides itself the "Best Live Theatre.” Call for performance times.

Biloxi Little Theatre is proud to present its second season play, Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring.

Arsenic and Old Lace revolves around the Brewster family, descended from Mayflower settlers but now composed of maniacs. Mortimer Brewster is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, murderous family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves, Elaine Harper, who lives next door and is the daughter of the local minister.

His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home; and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein. The Brewster family shenanigans will leave you rolling in the aisles!

January 24-26 and January 31-February 2, 2020. Friday/Saturday performances at 8PM, Sunday performances at 2PM.
