TWO new producers will make their debuts at the next production by a Leigh theatre group.
Nicola Reynolds and Dave Grime have a passion for live theatre - either becoming absorbed in the work of other actors and actresses or treading the boards themselves.
As long-standing members of St Joseph’s Players they have appeared in numerous pantomimes and plays, and bring their joint experience and enthusiasm to their first production.
Blithe Spirit, an improbable farce according to its writer Noel Coward, is set in 1931 and centred around Charles Condomine a socialite and novelist who marries Ruth after the death of his first wife, Elvira. Their marital bliss is interrupted when Madame Arcati, an extrovert medium, arrives at Charles’ invitation to amuse dinner guests – and he gets more than he bargains for!
This masterpiece carries the same guarantee of enjoyment as a well-mixed dry martini and there is much of the tinkling ice about the sharp, often wry, always gloriously entertaining dialogue.
Blithe Spirit is being performed at St Joseph’s Hall, Chapel Street, Leigh from Tuesday to Saturday, Sept 7 to 11 at 7.30pm. Pay on the door.
