Published Mar 18, 2014

Theatre Performance only, 8 p.m., Fri., and Sat., Apr. 4-5, Liberal Arts Theatre

     A smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, remarried but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira, who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati.  During a séance, which Charles agrees to hold to gather material for his book, his first wife comes back from the other side.  At first only Charles can hear and see Elvira.  This makes for some humorous confusion between Charles and his current wife. This fast-paced comedy is one not to be missed.  
     The Dinner Theatre performances begin at 6:30 p.m. with a delicious dinner served in the VisTaTech Center followed by the performance at 8 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Theatre on the college’s main campus in Livonia. Tickets for the Dinner Theatre performances are $27 per person. Tickets for the Theatre only performances Apr. 4-5 are $15 per person and the show begins at 8 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Theatre.
