The Brooklyn Opera House will be hosting a fall community theatre production of “Blithe Spirit” from Oct. 28 - 30.
Written by Noel Coward, this comedy hit focuses on novelist Charles Condomine, who is remarried, but haunted by the ghost of his late first wife, Elvira. Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, passes over and joins Elvira, and the two blithe spirits haunt Charles into perpetuity.
Set in Kent, England during the 1940s, this production will require a cast of five females and two males.
“This is a great show for women,” said Deborah Kennedy, co-director of this upcoming production. “Often in theatre, the plot of the play is centered around male characters, so I like that we can feature and celebrate women with this show that will hopefully make people laugh.”
Auditions for this performance will be held at the opera house on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. No prep is necessary, and actors will read from the script.
