Stageworks Theatre Announces Cast for 2024 Production of Blithe Spirit
Today, Stageworks Theatre release the cast list for their upcoming production of Noël Coward's timeless classic, Blithe Spirit.
This enchanting play features a lineup of incredibly talented actors who are sure to bring the wit and whimsy of Coward's world to life. Running from January 19 through February 4, 2024 at Stageworks Theatre in the Cypress area, Blithe Spirit is a smash comedy hit in London and New York.
A much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives, Blithe Spirit concerns fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, who has remarried but finds himself haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, Elvira. Clever, insistent and well aware of Charles' shortcomings, Elvira is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” the eccentric and flighty Madame Arcati. As everyone's personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed. She “passes over” and joins Elvira, allowing the two “blithe spirits” to haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
Tickets for Blithe Spirit are available online at Stageworks' website.
