Blithe Spirit

Auditions for Blithe Spirit
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright, Noël Coward, offers up fussy, cantakerous 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. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
 
Auditions for Blithe Spirit will be Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 from 2 to 4 pm. 
 
Performances are scheduled for November 12, 13, 18, 19, 20. 
 
All rehersals and performances will be at the Monticello Theatre Association Theater, 1406 N Market Street, Monticello, IL 61856
