Blithe Spirit

05/06/2018 2:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Memorial Opera House
Address: 104 Indiana Ave, Valparaiso, IN 46383, USA
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy and cantankerous novelist Charles Condomime who is remarried but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira, who is called up by by a visiting “happy medium”, one Madame Arcati.  Elvira truly raises spirits when she makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’ marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who can neither see or hear the ghost.  Memorial Opera House is delighted to present this hauntingly funny classic, one of the first plays presented here when the Community Theatre Guild was in residence!
Written By Noel Coward
Blithe Spirit is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

    In this infamous tale Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife.  The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice.  Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her pies that has the people of London lining up...and the carnage has only just begun!  The Memorial Opera House invites you to attend this dark, witty and Tony Award winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the background of 19th century London.
