Noel Coward's ghostly comedy features a "spirited" love triangle, brought forth when novelist Charles Condomine accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife, Elvira, during a séance. Trouble is, only Charles can see Elvira, who proceeds to wreak havoc on Charles' current marriage to the jealous Ruth. When Ruth meets her accidental demise, her spirit teams up with that of Elvira ... and then the haunted fun really begins. Hilarity ensues as the beleaguered Charles is caught between the worldly and the unworldly and must admit that there is indeed life on the "other side." A hit with audiences and critics alike when it premiered in 1941, and adapted into an Oscar-winning 1945 film with Rex Harrison, Blithe Spirit represents Coward at his driest and most urbane.

About the Ticket Supplier: Queensbury Theatre
In early 1956 the Country Playhouse was founded by a group of hardworking individuals, all with one common interest; a love for theatre. Their first play was Personal Appearance by Lawrence Riley and was performed at Memorial Drive Elementary School. Their first production made a profit of $112.
In 1958, the Playhouse relocated to the old Veteran’s Hall on Katy Road. The place was an old abandoned church in a state of disrepair, but by 1960 the Playhouse had raked in profits of $6000 – enough to build their own building on the property. The barn-like structure of The Country Playhouse continued to delight audiences with performances until they were forced to move when their property was purchased by Joe Johnson, and is now part of Memorial City Mall.
In 1981, The Country Playhouse found its latest and greatest home across the street from Town & Country Mall and remains there today. The Cerwinske Stage (named after charter members Herb & Alceste Cerwinske) holds a capacity crowd of 226 and the Black Box theatre provides a venue for entertainment ranging from cutting edge, commercial plays to live readings of original works, many of which go on to full production staging. The Playhouse holds adult and children’s acting classes under the professional eye of Barbara Lasater.
