January 13 - February 4, 2023
Written by Noël Coward -- Directed by Melanie Mays
To gather background for his new book, novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife, Ruth, invite the extremely eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to perform a séance. But Charles’ spiritual skepticism vanishes when the ghost of his deceased first wife, Elvira, 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! From the delightfully mischevious mind of Noël Coward comes Blithe Spirit, where love and marriage devolve into laughter and mayhem – and ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ no longer applies.

The Diary of
April 21 - May 7
By Francis Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Jeff Mandell
This moving and profoundly important drama, drawn from previously unpublished portions of Anne Frank’s famous memoirs, follows Anne’s precarious coming-of-age time as she and her family hide in a secret annex space above her father’s former office in Amsterdam, while the Nazis are deporting Dutch Jews to their deaths. In spite of her oppressive circumstances and the horrors that surround her, Anne’s spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”
The event will feature a 34-banner travelling exhibit in the downstairs Perkins Performance Hall entitled
‘Let Me Be Myself’ The Life Story of Anne Frank.
It shows the story of Anne Frank and contains statements of young people who had experiences with exclusion and discrimination, and serves as an inspiration to think about the consequences of Anne Frank's story for today’s society. 'Let Me Be Myself' is part of the international work of the Anne Frank House that reaches out to 40 countries.
