Blithe the Spirit
It’s a new twist on an old classic. The Seaway Valley Theater Company (SVTC) is presenting Blithe the Spirit, a play from Noël Coward.
Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a novel he is writing, and he arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. At the séance, she inadvertently summons Charles's first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years.
The director of the play, Michael Dewolfe, is no stranger to theater. “I’ve directed several plays,” he said. “But I believe this is the oldest one the SVTC has ever done. It’s a very unique play and we’ve had to tackle several different challenges that we normally don’t face.”
Blithe the Spirit will run on June 3,
4, 10, and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and on June 5 at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are available at
