“Two Witches, No Waiting,” written by Pat Cook and directed by Joe Skrivanek, opens at Duncanville Community Theatre this Thursday.

The two eccentric Marcus sisters, Arlene and Elzbeth, are witches. When their housekeeper suspiciously disappears, the local sheriff is understandably slow to investigate. No one is equipped to deal with the spells, potions, spying owls, and the mysterious new housekeeper. The setting is present day, in the living room of the old Coventry house.
