WHS Theater Presents - Blithe Spirit

The team of student artists at Woodburn High School Theatre are thrilled to re-open the doors of their auditorium for the first time since the pandemic began. Their fall play is a comedy, Blithe Spirit, by Noel Coward, running for two weekends, November 12-13, 19-20.


This comedy classic follows a cantankerous novelist suffering from the worst case of writer’s block. Following a seance gone wrong, Charles Condomine discovers he is now haunted by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira. A supernatural love triangle leads to "deadly" hilarious moments as Charles finds himself pushed to the limits in this dark comedy. Because of some dark humor, mild language and innuendo, this show is recommended for middle school age and older.


The show runs for two weekends and features two separate casts. November 12, 13 at 7:00 pm and November 20 at 2:00 pm will feature the Blue Cast while November 13 at 2:00 pm and November 19, 20 at 7:00 pm will feature the Silver Cast. Double-casting ensures that more students have more opportunities to perform.


All performances take place at the Woodburn High School Auditorium. Due to Covid-19 precautions, audiences will be required to wear a face-covering and groups will be socially distanced. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended, though not required. Tickets are $5 for general admission. Woodburn School District employees are free. Tickets can be purchased from the box office starting thirty minutes before each performance.
