Tin Roof Theatre is proud to announce that Karla Underdahl will be directing our April production–Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit.” NDSU students will be designing our poster graphics as a class assignment in January, but until then–here’s Madame Arcati’s “crystal ball.”
The smash comedy hit concerns the novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance. Charles hopes to gather material for his next book, but the scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira. Only Charles can see or hear Elvira, and his second wife, Ruth, does not believe that Elvira exists until a floating vase is handed to her out of thin air. The ghostly Elvira makes increasingly desperate efforts to disrupt Charles’s current marriage. There’s classic comedy in the telling of the story, including a few surprises. Show dates will be April 17-19 & 23-25 at FMCT’s Studio 6 on Broadway.
