Following on a sold-out premiere at the Phillips Collection, please join Picnic Theatre Company on Wednesday June 17, Thursday June 18, Friday June 19, 2015 for a summer garden party performance of Joseph Kesselring’s Arsenic and Old Lace!  Theatregoers are invited to bring blankets and a picnic for outdoor seating in the garden.  Enjoy music, wine, and a one-act one hour performance of the smash hit 1940s madcap dark comedy brought from Broadway to the silver screen by Frank Capra starring Cary Grant.  Inside the Brewster Mansion, villains, lunatics, and sweet little old ladies form the ultimate dysfunctional family.
Proceeds benefit the preservation of Dumbarton House, one of Georgetown’s finest examples of Federal period architecture, and Courage for Kids GIVE BACK-pack initiative providing backpacks filled with school supplies to homeless and at-risk children graduating from Pre-K programs in the Greater Washington, DC area.
Please follow The Picnic Theatre Company on their Facebook page.

In 2008, I launched AskMissA.com which grew from my personal blog into a site with 700 writers, covering the intersection of charity & lifestyle in 20 U.S. cities. With Charity + Life, I am going back to a personal blog where I can share my favorite things, and continue to shine a light on nonprofits, and cause marketing campaigns to inspire others to give as they live.
