Red Curtain's second show of the 2017-2018 season is "Blithe Spirit," a witty supernatural comedy written by Noel Coward. Performances will be Fridays-Sundays, Oct 20-No 5, 2017.

The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when Charles is haunted by the ghost of his temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance.

Directed by Joe Goins, "Blithe Spirit" is a timeless favorite of theatre audiences.

To reserve an audition slot, please email your headshot and resume to office@redcurtainfoundation.org. Actors should prepare a 2-minute comedic monologue in an elevated vocal style suggesting class and sophistication. Auditions and performances will be held at the Red Curtain Arts Center at 9315 State Ave, Suite J in Marysville.

Red Curtain is an equal-opportunity arts organization and is open to non-traditional casting for all of our shows. We encourage gender-blind and color-conscious casting from all of our directors.

We are located in the Goodwill shopping center, behind the cosmetology school.
