Winner! 2009 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Revival

The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married 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. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over", joins Elvira and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

Charity Performances Update

Dartmouth Players deeply regrets that, due to extreme financial constraints, we will be suspending our Charity Preview Program and our Scholarship Program until further notice. Our final Charity Preview show will be Midlife: The Crisis Musical and will take place on Monday, November 10th. All proceeds will go to the “Dartmouth Grannies” (Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers for Grandmothers in Africa). Please contact K. Horton at 902-434-3134 or BJ Kirby martock12@eastlink.ca for tickets.
 
For the three remaining shows of the season, we will still be holding a Preview Night (final dress rehearsal) on the Monday immediately preceding each Opening Night. However, tickets will not be sold for these performances; admission will be on a “pay-what-you-can” basis, (suggested donation of 10.00 or more). These proceeds will go towards the “Dartmouth Players Survival Fund”, in the hope of keeping our community theatre alive and in its present location for the foreseeable future. Tickets for Opening Nights, which had previously been priced at $7.00 each, will be priced at full regular admission.
