HHS Seniors Stage ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ to Help Pay for End-of-Year Activities

Detail from the HHS Senior Class Play playbill. The fall production is an annual tradition, proceeds from which are used to help defray the cost of graduation season events such as the class trip.

This year’s Senior Class Play, a fundraiser for the Haverhill High School Class of 2017, is “Arsenic and Old Lace.

General admission tickets are $8, but a discounted ticket price of $5 is given to students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at the door.

Performances are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (Nov. 16, 18 and 19) at 7 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m.

Not willing to leave all the fun to the kids, Senior Class Adviser and Assistant Principal Matt Steinberg will share the role of Officer Steinberg with student Allison House.

As is tradition in HHS productions, many roles are double-cast, giving twice as many student actors the chance to participate in productions if they wish.
