“Blithe Spirit” opens this month at CPAC

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013 | Posted by

Blithe SpiritThe comedic wit of playwright Noel Coward is coming to the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, 209 N. Cloverdale Blvd., later this month in the form of “Blithe Spirit.”

Socialite and novelist Charles Condomine was only hoping to gather material for his next book when he invited eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati into his quiet country home. He had no idea the seance would result in his being  haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira.

She believes life in the spirit would would be much more entertaining for her if she can get Charles into a car accident and make a ghost of him. As fate would have it, his second wife is the who takes the fatal automobile ride, only to return with Elvia to plague the bewildered Charles.

How will he ever extricate himself from these blithe spirits?

Performances are slated for 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, Aug. 16, 17, 23, 24.  Sunday matinees will take place at 2 p.m. on Aug. 18 and 25.

Tickets are $18 each and can either be purchased online at cloverdaleperformingarts.com or in person at the Mail Center, located next door to the theater at 207-A N. Cloverdale Blvd. during regular business hours.
