The Duncanville Community Theatre has announced their 25th Anniversary season and it is packed with favorites from the past years of the DCT.

Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring will be directed by Jerry Ayers and runs August 2-4 and 9-11. This is a story of two spinsters serve a special blend of elderberry wine as their nephew discovers bodies and more in this well-known favorite. This was first produced by the DCT in 1994-1995 season. Auditions for this production will be held June 25 and 26 at 7PM at the Duncanville Community Theatre at 106 S. Main Street. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and the director is looking to fill various adult roles for men and women. Auditions for the remainder of the shows will be announced on the DCT website, www.dctheatre.org.

Genevieve Croft will be directing Fred Carmichael’s Exit the Body, which will run September 20-22 and 27-29. A mystery writer’s vacation quickly becomes bedlam as bodies and jewel thieves appear at his quiet New England cottage. Exit the Body was last produced in the 2002-2003 season.

On November 8-10 and 15-17 will see You Can’t Take it With You, written by Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman and directed by Elisa Guse. Fireworks in the basement, ballet in the parlor, politics and young love all meld together in this warm-hearted and funny classic.  This was also last seen during the 2002-2003 season.

The “Valentine” show will be Woody Allen’s Don’t Drink the Water, directed by Amy Jackson. The production will run February 7-9 and 14-16. In this hilarious tale, vacationers rush to the American Embassy for refuge when they are accused of spying, but find only chaos. Jackson also directed this play in the 1988-1989 season.

William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker will be on the stage on March 14-16 and 21-23, and directed by Kevin Paris. Based on true-life events, Annie Sullivan works tirelessly to rescue Helen Keller from her dark and tortured silence. This play was last seen on the DCT stage in the 1998-1999 season.

The final scheduled production for this upcoming season is Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, directed by Danielle Clemens. An eccentric medium mistakenly summons the ghost of Charles’ first wife creating mischievous havoc in this comical farce. The production will run May 9-11 and 16-18 and was last produced at the DCT in the 2005-2006 season.
