West Side Theatre to present Blithe Spirit


In keeping with our ongoing celebration of their 75th year, West Side Theatre  is  happy to announce its upcoming production of Blithe Spirit by Noel  Coward.  The play was premiered in the early 1940’s and as such blends  nicely with Newman’s own West Side Theatre premiere of 1940.

Blithe Spirit is an exciting comedy dealing with an upper class English  author who, through his own meddling, has to deal with two wives, one alive  and one a ghost. We have just cast a great group of actors looking forward to  sharing this fun-filled show with all.

The show opens October 23th and runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday for two weekends; closing on November 1.

The cast includes  Linda Garrett, Cyndi Mall, John Burgess, Darlene Panarra,  Joe Moitozo ,Jr., Melanie Braun, and Maddie Panarra.

Directing the production is Mrs. Marion Streczyn. Marion resides in Reno and  has been a director for many years in Nevada after being involved with theater  in the Bay Area. She is happy and honored to have been asked to direct Blithe  Spirit. Streczyn has said, “I am excited to work with dedicated people and I  believe our production

will  be a great success! So, save the dates!” West Side Theatre’s own Gail E. Chapman is assistant director.



Tickets are $17 General, $20 Reserved Section.

Show times 7 p.m. evenings;  Sunday matinees 3 p.m.

Doors open 1/2 hour before performance.
