Batavia High School students bring to life the comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace" at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at The Batavia Fine Arts Centre in Batavia.

BATAVIA – STAGE, the parent booster group that supports theater arts at both Batavia High School and Rotolo Middle School, will sponsor a dinner fundraiser in conjunction with the comedy classic “Arsenic and Old Lace,” beginning at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at The Batavia Fine Arts Centre, 1201 Main St., Batavia.

Guests are asked to arrive  to the show at 5:15 p.m.

Guests will have the opportunity to dine in the Black Box theater before seeing the show performed on the main stage at 7:30 p.m. 

Dinner guests will be  transported to Brooklyn, New York, circa 1939, as the Black Box is transformed into the Brewster family dining room. 

Jason Stoffels, the chef  of Enticing Cuisine, will prepare a multi-course dinner, served family-style. The dinner will end with  a slice of almond-flavored Lady Baltimore cake prepared by Maevey Cakes of Batavia.

In addition to the meal, each guest will receive an “Arsenic and Old Lace” souvenir glass, commemorating the event. 

Seating is limited. Tickets cost $25 and are available for purchase at www.BataviaFineArtsCentre.org.
