High Spirits opens Lost Treasures Collection series
Strong women is theme for this seasons rarely performed musicals
Lakewood Theatre Company will present the Lost Treasures Collection series of rarely performed musical productions again this season.
This year, three musicals, all following the theme of strong women, will be presented in concert/cabaret style. The first offering, High Spirits, will have just three performances: Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 19 at 2 and 7 p.m. Performances are at Lakewoods Side Door State at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State St. in Lake Oswego.
High Spirits is based on the play Blithe Spirits by Noel Coward. In the musical, writer Charles Condomine (Joe Theissen) hosts a séance conducted by medium Madame Arcati (Maggi Chapin) in the hope that hell learn her tricks so he can use the information in his new novel.
His assumption that she is a fake is proven wrong when she falls into a trance and unwittingly conjures the spirit of his late wife, Elvira (Evynne Hollens), although he alone can see her. His present wife, Ruth (Pam Mahon), believes that Charlie is joking until Elvira moves into the Condomine household much to the confusion of Edith (Lisa Knox), the housemaid.
The performances are presented script in hand with minimal staging no sets, no props. Food and beverages are available for purchase before and during the show.
Tickets are $20 for all seats. The whole series of three musicals is available for a subscription package of $55. Contact the Lakewood Theatre box office at 503-635-3901 or order online at lakewood-center.org.Add a comment
