The Virginia Wesleyan Theatre Department will open its production of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit tonight, Oct. 5, at 7:30 p.m. Performances are scheduled for October 5-8 at 7:30 p.m. and October 8-9 at 2 p.m. in Virginia Wesleyan’s Hofheimer Theatre. Dean of the Susan S. Goode School of Arts and Humanities and Professor of Theatre Travis Malone is directing the play and shares a synopsis: “In Noel Coward’s sharp-witted farce of love, manners, marriage, and ghosts, novelist Charles Condomine and wife plan a séance to expose a famous medium as a fraud, but Charles gets more than he bargained for when his first wife—whom only he can see—comes back to haunt him and to insure that the two of them will spend eternity together.” Complimentary admission is available for VWC students, faculty, and staff. For all others admission is $15 for adults and $10 for students. Reservations are recommended but not required. To make a reservation, email or call 757.455.3381.
