CRESTVIEW — Following View from the Stage’s fall production, "Arsenic and Old Lace," the community theatre troupe continues in a comedic vein with this weekend's staging of the classic British farce, "See How They Run."

Warriors Hall will resound with Phillip King's comedy and its cacophony of slamming doors, mistaken pastoral identities, an escaped Russian spy, and a prim and proper parishioner who gets into the cooking sherry.

The fast-paced comedy, directed by Sandra Peters, features a nine-member cast that includes her husband, the Rev. Sean Peters, appropriately playing the Rev. Lionel Toop, vicar of the fictitious English village of Merton-cum-Middlewick.

Familiar local actors Craig McRae, Corey Black and Jeremy Faust return to the boards following their appearances in "Arsenic," joined by Courtney Peters, Nancy Black, Meghan Erlacher, Ray Erlacher and Michael Hoppenjan.

Performances begin Friday evening and run through Sunday's matinee.
