Blithe Spirit, by Noel Coward, offers up novelist Charles Condomine, his second wife, Ruth, and the series of laugh-filled situations that arise following a séance conducted in their home by the clairvoyant medium Madame Arcati. Hoping to gather material for a novel, Charles and Ruth find themselves haunted (literally) by the ghost of Charles’ late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira. The situation very quickly becomes a matter of wife and death. The smash comedy that hit the London and Broadway stages will be produced by the St. Catherine University Department of Music and Theater in collaboration with the University of St. Thomas.
The Resident Hall Association and Department of Music and Theater are also sponsoring and Evening for Residents to encourage students to come and support their fellow Katies. This event will take place November 5 at 6 p.m. in the O’Shaughnessey Green Room. There will be tea and treats, palm reading lessons and a prize drawing for those who reserve tickets in advance. Attendance is required in order to win any of the three prizes.
