Staff reports

Carson Valley Community Theatre needs five women and two men for Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit.”

Auditions dates and times are 9 a.m.-noon July 6, and 6-9 p.m. July 8 at the Carson Valley Methodist Church in Gardnerville.

“Blithe Spirit” revolves around Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, who wishes to learn about the occult for his new novel.

He arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house.

During the séance she inadvertently summons Charles’ first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years.

Only Charles can see and hear her. The ghostly Elvira makes continued, and increasingly desperate, efforts to disrupt Charles’ current marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear her.

Performance dates are Oct. 11,12,13,18,19 and 20.
