Mission's Opening Nite Theatre Society begins season with Blithe Spirit.

Season begins with Blithe Spirit

Mission's amateur theatre group kicks off the new season this month

Opening Nite Theatre Society is opening its sixth season with Blithe Spirit, one Noel Coward’s best known works.

This season opener is a refreshingly hilarious take on life, love, and the problems of coming back from the afterlife. When Charles Condomine and his wife Ruth host a dinner party and invite the local wacky medium, they expect to be entertained and amused. Instead they end up haunted.

This improbable farce stars local actors Brent Boutilier and Kathy Yewell as Charles and Ruth Condomine, and features Cara Thomson as Elvira and newcomer Norma Rushton as the loopy and mercurial medium Madame Arcati.

Blithe Spirit opens Oct. 19 and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. until Nov. 19.

Tickets are $12 each and available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue or at the door. Opening Nite Theatre is located at 33223 N. Railway Ave.
