Blithe Spirit

Tupelo Community Theatre will present Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward on March 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on the 10th at the Lyric Theatre in Downtown Tupelo. This smash comedy hit offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, remarried but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife. A visiting “happy medium” Madame Arcati calls up the late, clever and insistent Elvira. As worldly and other worldly personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, also dies and passes over to join Elvira. The two “blithe spirits” then lovingly haunt Charles into perpetuity. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and younger and go on sale to the public at Noon on February 26th. For more information or to purchase tickets call the TCT box office at 662-844-1935.
