The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of "Private Lives" offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles' current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, "passes over," joins Elvira, and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

Those who are auditioning should prepare to perform a monologue we will provide for you. This DOES NOT have to be memorized but we will post the monologues so you can be familiar before you come in to audition. Readings from the play will happen if callbacks are needed.
