The Bonnie Kate Community Theater is pleased to announce audition dates for  Arsenic And Old Lace, a classic comedy in three acts, full of romance, laughter, mayhem, and, well…murder!

 Auditions are set for August 8th or 9th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Show dates are set for October 14, 15, 16, and 21, 22, and 23. The Sunday performances will be matinees. 

Auditioners are welcome to attend either date. It is not necessary to prepare a monologue, as auditioners will be reading from the script. Please have an idea of possible schedule conflicts that you may have. We have a large cast to fill, and many crew positions available as well. This play can cast adults and mature teens, but no children.

Specific questions or comments can be sent to

Bring your enthusiasm! Tell your friends! We look forward to seeing you there!

The Bonnie Kate Theater Welcomes YOU to her Next Big Adventure!

We are starting a community theater here in Elizabethton, under the Friends of The Bonnie Kate, and we want YOU to join us! Along with diving right in to a play performance of Arsenic and Old Lace in October, we are looking to start a group, The Bonnie Kate Community Theater, that will act as a support for this play as well as other production ideas in the future. Whether your interests lie on stage or off stage we are reaching out because we need volunteers in all areas to make this dream a reality.
