Azusa, Calif. — The Azusa Pacific University Theater continues its 2011–12 season with the comedic production Blithe Spirit, Feb. 2–4 and Feb. 9–10, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., with two showings on Feb. 11, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. All performances take place at the APU Theater located in the Mary Hill Center, on APU’s West Campus, at 701 E.

The classic tale recounts the tribulations of Charles Condomine as he is haunted by the ghost of his first wife, Elvira. Her appearance throws the ordered life Charles leads with his second wife into turmoil as Elvira tries to rekindle her relationship with Charles. APU takes this Noel Coward farce from the British countryside to the heyday of Hollywood.

APU’s Blithe Spirit is directed by Monica Ganas, Ph.D., professor and co-chair of the Department of Theater, Film, and Television.
