Blithe Spirit

Charles Condomine lives an elegant life of sophisticated playfulness as an English author, living with his second wife.   Research for an upcoming novel leads him to a psychic, a séance and the unexpected return of his first bride!  What is a man to do when the ghost of his first wife annoyingly collides with the demands of his present, living wife?  Join us at Herndon HS Theatre to experience the hilarious results—chaos, innuendo and plots of the amusing “undead” ensue!

Set in the sophistication of the early 1940’s, Noel Coward’s naughty, witty comedy, Blithe Spirit, is one of Theatre’s guilty pleasures!

(This play is not appropriate for young children; mature audiences, please!)

Produced by Special Arrangement with Samuel French

(for Mature audiences)

May 1, 2 & 3, 2014  at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets:  $10

Grand Young Actors Camp

Registration is Open!!!
Our Grand Young Actors program will be held June 30 - July 3, 9 a.m. - noon.  Children, from rising 3rd graders to rising 6th graders, will enjoy theatre games, work on audition skills and creative movement.  Camp is $100.  Best of all, the kids get to know our director, Zoe Dillard, and our counselors who are rising seniors and Class of 2014 grads, and get comfortable at Herndon HS.  We've enjoyed our GYA kids as much as they've enjoyed our program.  And it is really fun to watch them grow up and move on to our month-long theatre production camp.
