At rehearsal last night for The Man Who Came To Dinner, I was asked if I would be interested in having a part in Class Act Theatre’s current production of Arsenic And Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring. The part is for a police officer named KLEIN. Apparently the original actor had to drop out a week before opening and the current actor dropped out after this past weekend.
The role is not very large. KLEIN and BROPHY (his partner) are in the first act and act somewhat as narrators, providing some of the background for the play. They are not seen again until the third act when the mystery is close to being solved.
I accepted the role. It is now Wednesday and I have until Friday to learn all the lines and blocking.
Arsenic And Old Lace runs for 3 more weekends, 7 shows.
