A ghostly comedy comes to the East Bank stage

Just when you thought ghost season came to an end...

BOSSIER CITY, La. (Ark-La-Tex Weekend) - The Bossier Arts Council and The Company Repertory Theatre present Blithe Spirit: An Improbable Farce in Three Acts for two weekends in November.

From the press release, “a smash comedy hit in London and New York, this much-revived classic, from the playwright of Private Lives, concerns fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, who has remarried but finds himself haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, Elvira. Clever, insistent and well aware of Charles’ shortcomings, Elvira is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” the eccentric and flighty Madame Arcati. As everyone’s personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed. She “passes over” and joins Elvira, allowing the two “blithe spirits” to haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.”

Show times are November 4-6 and November 11-13. Friday and Saturday shows start at 7:00pm while Sundays are matinees at 3:00pm. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased here.
