MTG Presents High Spirits

High Spirits

Richard Israel will direct Musical Theatre Guild’s upcoming production, of High Spirits, to be presented one night only, February 22nd at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Based on Noel Coward’s comedy Blithe Spirit (currently being revived on Broadway), it has book, lyrics and music by Hugh Martin and Timothy Gray.

Reinvented as a sassy, sly and successful 60’s musical, this sparkling tuneful version follows the mischievous spirit of Elvira (Michelle Duffy), the first Mrs. Condomine, as she bedevils writer Charles Condomine (Damon Kirsche) and his present wife Ruth (Teri Bibb). Eccentric medium Madame Arcati (Carol Kline) conjures up the naughty ghost and endeavors to send her back to the other world.

Also featured in the cast are Lowe Taylor (Edith), Marsha Kramer (Mrs. Bradman), William Martinez (Dr. Bradman), Kim Huber, Tracy Lore, Brandon Michael Perkins and Jeffrey Polk. Musical direction is by Mary Ekler.


Tickets for the performance are available by calling 818-243-ALEX or online at www.alextheatre.org/ or www.musicaltheatreguild.com/. The Alex Theatre is located at 216 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA 91203.
