2018 Non-Equity Auditions:



Act Inc. is holding auditions for their summer production of Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward. Directed by Jane Sullivan.


Summary: Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noël Coward. The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.


We are seeking:


Edith. (Maid), 20-30’s, The Condomine’s new maid, eager to please, moves at a quick pace.


Ruth Condomine. (2nd wife of Charles), Mid 30’s, Witty and sophisticated. Ruth is a bit stuffy and predictable.


Charles Condomine. (Novelist) 40’s, Bright, sophisticated, debonair and somewhat at the mercy of his wives, past and present.


Dr. George Bradman. (Doctor), 40’s-50’s, friend of the Condomine’s, invited for dinner and a seance. Skeptic.


Mrs. Violet Bradman. (Wife of Dr. Bradman) 40’s-50’s, Simple, naive, fascinated by the medium.


Madame Arcati. (Psychic/Medium) 45-65, Local eccentric. Considers herself a spiritualist and a medium.
