Kemptville Players Inc is presenting this classic comedy opening October 24 at the Urbandale Arts Centre. Here is a rehearsal photo of Charles Condomine (Ron Hallman) suffering through an encounter with both of his wives – his first wife Elvira (Kate Laphan), who is really a ghost, and his very long-suffering current wife, Ruth (Bradlee Zrudlo).
Only Charles can see and hear Elvira, and the comedy rushes along with misunderstandings and colourful innuendos. The medium, Madame Arcati, ends up in a trance on the floor, Charles ends up with his arm in a sling, poor Ruth ends up screaming and in tears, and Elvira floats and gloats throughout it all. Noel Coward at his best! October 24-27. Evening shows at 7:30 pm, Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm, Saturday dinner theatre at 6:00 pm. Tickets $20, $15 for those under 16, $50 for dinner theatre, $45 for children. Tickets available at B&H Grocers, Business Strategies, Municipal Centre, at the door and online at www.kemptvilleplayers.ca.
