The feuding Futrelle sisters put the "fun" in dysfunction in Dearly Beloved, the hilarious and heart-warming production at Coronado Playhouse. The rumor mill in Fayro, Texas, has been working overtime from the moment the sisters started planning the "wedding of the century." No surprise there -- the sisters have been Town Topic No. 1 since the breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing group, The Sermonettes. But now caught up in a Texas twister of gossip, God and gunfire, they desperately attempt to pull off the Gone with the Wind-themed nuptials ... even as the bride goes missing. Gary Cohen directs this Southern-fried comedy written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The classic tale centers on the tribulations of Charles Condomine as he’s haunted, by the ghost of his first wife Elvira who appears following a séance orchestrated by the eccentric medium, Madam Arcati. Elvira’s appearance throws the ordered life Charles leads with his second wife into turmoil as Elvira tries to rekindle her relationship with Charles. But director Pete Shaner has spun an interesting twist into this classic Noel Coward farce. Instead to visiting the British countryside, the audience will find themselves immersed in the heyday of Hollywood.
“We want to create a unique experience for the audience,” said Pete Shaner, Blithe Spirit director, “Both community theater enthusiasts who may be familiar with the play and also first time theater goers should enjoy the experience. It will be like stepping back in time and being part of the séance, the rituals, the confusion and the chaos. We’ve created quite a few memorable surprises that we hope will breathe a new life into our production.”
Director Pete Shaner, an independent filmmaker and an officer in the Air National Guard, is a fairly recent addition to the Coronado Playhouse and theater. He was first seen in the role of ‘Hornbeck’ in Inherit the Wind and most recently he’s played ‘Orlando’ in Shakespeare’s As You Like It. He’s currently finishing up an independent film version of As You Like It using most of the same cast members from the theatrical production.
The play is being produced by Lizzie Mander-Wilson, who is a long time veteran of the Coronado Playhouse in addition to being a member of the board for the Playhouse.
The cast of Blithe Spirit includes Nicole Wolber (Ruth), Pete Shaner (Charles), Victoria Mature (Elvira), Jim Steinberg (Dr. Bradman), Renee Gondola (Mrs. Bradman), Amanda Everett (Edith, the maid), and Ashley Gardner (Madame Arcati).
