MOUSE RIVER PLAYERS POSTPONES ‘BLITHE SPIRIT’
Due to recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and in consideration of the State of Emergency, at both the state and national levels concerning the novel Coronavirus/ COVID 19 virus, Mouse River Players (MRP) is postponing their current production of “Blithe Spirit.”
Out of respect for the health and well-being of patrons, the community and artists, the executive board members of MRP unanimously decided it would be in the best interests of everyone to postpone the current production of “Blithe Spirit” by at least a week to aid in the mitigation of the novel Coronavirus/ COVID 19 virus. (Exact dates to be announced. )
Ticket holders for shows scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21 at 7:30 pm and/ or the Sunday Matinee, March 22 at 2 pm, will have their current tickets honored for future show dates, which are yet to be determined.
In the event of a cancellation, current ticket holders are welcome to donate their ticket purchase to the theater in support of theatre arts or may seek a refund by calling (701) 838-3939.
To stay informed of the postponement dates and details for “Blithe Spirit” and/ or other productions, please join their mailing list on the sidebar to the right or by visiting us on FaceBook.
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
