While working on a novel about the occult, Charles Condomine decides to get a feel for the 'real thing' by inviting Madame Arcati, an eccentric medium, to hold a séance at his house. Her 'other-wordly' efforts inadvertently summon the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years. Mayhem and hilarity are inevitable when Elvira and Charles' new wife Ruth don't exactly co-exist.
The talented ensemble includes Ben Berry (Elvira), Jacob Ford (Charles Condomine), Astranada Gamsey (Edith), Scott Hayes (Madame Arcati), Whitney Hudson (Ruth Condomine), and Lacey Waite (Mrs. Bradman).
Blithe Spirit is directed by Adam Berry, with Production Manager Tessa K. Bry, Stage Manager Mia Baumgarten, Set Design Michael Steers, Lighting Design Chris Page, and Costume Design Carol Sherry.
BerryMeyer Productions is a performing arts company aiming to uphold the tradition of quality theatre and performance that has enriched and sustained the unique community of Provincetown, the "birthplace of American theatre", for many years. BerryMeyer Productions is a new collaboration between Adam Berry, Ben Berry, and Tessa K. Bry; each of whom are familiar to the local audience, and over the past decade have contributed considerably to theatre on the Outer Cape.
At the helm of this production is Adam Berry, a paranormal investigator on the hit SyFy network reality series, Ghost Hunters. His unique experience in dealing with spirits on the other side translates to the stage perfectly in this upcoming production of Blithe Spirit.
