The Naples Players is excited to announce all of their events in September! Blithe Spirit, Sponsored by Gallerie Indigo, will be in Blackburn Hall from September 28 – October 23. This smash comedy hit offers up a fussy, cantankerous, and spiritual skeptic in Charles Condomine (James Duggan). But, Charles’ spiritual skepticism vanishes when the ghost of his deceased ﬁrst wife, Elvira (Erica Jones), accidentally materializes—but only to him. Elvira’s still in love and wants Charles back, and is not about to let a little thing like death stand in her way! Don’t miss this production where love and marriage devolve into laughter and mayhem – and ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ no longer applies. Tickets are $47 and can be purchased online at NaplesPlayers.org or call the box office at 239-263-7990.
A Red Carpet Opening will be held for Blithe Spirit on September 28 from 6:30pm – 7:30pm and feature local vendors, our sponsors, and music by the band, Chariot! This event is open to the public so feel free to bring friends and family to join in on the fun!
