This morning as I walked into my ENC 1102 class, I overheard a fellow student talking about a play that he had just seen the night prior. He and the teacher were talking about it, and it sort of peaked my interest, so I chimed in. I asked what they were talking about, and they told me about a play that was very interesting. The name of the play is “Blithe Spirit” and it was apparently outstanding. I cannot say for sure, as I did not personally see it. (Heck.. I didn’t even know about it until today.) But, I cannot imagine it was anything less than amazing, coming from the Manatees. =]
Anyway, I did some research, and found out that it is still being performed, so if you would like to see it, it is still on from Thursday-Saturday (23-25) in the David S. and Anne V. Howard Studio Theatre, at the Bradenton Campus at 8pm. A matinee performance is also scheduled at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 19. Here is a brief description of the play:
Written by Noel Coward, “Blithe Spirit” is a comedy about a novelist who invites a medium to conduct a séance, which goes awry with hilarious results.
The SCF production is directed by Ken Erickson Jr., director of SCF’s Theatre Program. Cast members include SCF students William Fisher as Charles, Sally Fint as Ruth, Rebecca Moore as Madame Arcati, Rachel Xavier as Elvira, and Andrew Bins as Dr. Bradman. Madeline Heath and Hannah Zachowski will alternate in the roles of Mrs. Bradman and Edith, the maid.
For the general public, admission into the play is $10. For all of the Manatees interested, admission is $5 if you have your student I.D. Tickets are on sale now in the Neel Performing Arts Center box office, which is open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. For more information, call 941-752-5252.
