‘Blithe Spirit’ stage comedy starts May 4 in Cheney

StageWest Community Theatre will perform “Blithe Spirit,” beginning May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 639 Elm St., in Cheney.

The comedy is about an author who would like to write a murder mystery about a murderous medium. To write the mystery, he hires the local medium to hold a séance in the author’s home, so he can be educated on her craft. The medium brings back the author’s deceased wife, but the author is the only person who can see his dead wife; this drives the author’s current wife crazy.

Other performance dates include May 5, May 11-12 and May 18-19 at 7 p.m. Sunday shows will be May 6 and May 13 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students with ID and seniors, age 65 and older. Tickets may be purchased at the Owl Pharmacy in Cheney and Medical Lake or online at
