upcoming events:

Blithe Spirit

February 20 @ 08:00 pm thru February 20 @ 10:15 pm
A Noel Coward comedy classic, Blithe Spirit is set at the house of writer, Charles Condomine, and his wife, Ruth. One evening, Charles invites local eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. He asks his friends Dr. and Mrs. Bradman to join them, intending to gather character inspiration from Madame Arcati for Condomine's latest book. Despite initially thinking the séance has been a failure, it soon becomes clear that Madame Arcati has unwittingly brought back Charles’ first wife, Elvira, to haunt him. Once in the house, Elvira is unable to leave and, since she cannot be seen or heard by Ruth, she causes all kinds of mischievous trouble between the married couple. Blithe Spirit combines farce, emotion, and clever wit. The recent Broadway revival won the Tony for Best Actress in play. Group pricing is available for parties of 10 or more. To book your group, contact Julie Hahn, Director of Ticket Services, 843-686-3945, x100, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. M-F. Group tickets may not be purchased online.
