The Kemptville Players are busy rehearsing for the opening of the Fall production of Blithe Spirit. This is a scene from a seance led by the eclectic and astonishing Madame Arcati! Things do not go as planned, and it ends up with a spirit appearing from the dead and with Madame Arcati in a heap on the floor. Coward himself called this play “An Improbable Farce”.
The play opens at the Urbandale Arts Centre on October 24 until October 27. Evening shows 7:30 pm, Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm, and Saturday dinner theatre at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $20, and $15 for those under 16, dinner theatre costs $50.00, with tickets also available for just the show. Ticket outlets at B&H Grocers, Business Strategies, the Municipal Centre, at the door, and online at www.kemptvilleplayers.ca.
