The Story: Fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. During a dinner party, the (worldly and un-) personalities clash and Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
We’re also looking for people interested in helping out backstage during performances, stage managing, running lights and sound, helping with props and costumes and building and painting the set. If you love the theatre and have the urge to be a part of the magic, please come to the auditions and sign up for one of the ‘crews.’ For more information call 276-238-1217.
