Blithe Spirit

July 21 through July 31, 2022, MC Performing Arts, Studio Theater

The original ghost comedy, Blithe Spirit, haunts the Moorpark College Studio Theatre this summer to provide much needed laughs after a two year shut down. This classic Noel Coward farce was originally produced on Broadway in November of 1941, and has been delighting audiences ever since and it’s the perfect summer comedy to provide a hilarious night out for the entire family! The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and other-worldly) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

USE THIS LINK TO PURCHASE TICKETS FOR DISENCHANTED

Image of darts embedded in an apple and on it is written names of various Disney princesses who are "Disenchanted". Performances July 24-27, 2022 at MC PAC.

Disenchanted!

July 24 through July 27, 2022, MC Performing Arts, Studio Theater

For a special treat this summer, Moorpark College Theatre Arts Alumni are returning to work with our current students on a showcase production of the smash hit fairy tale parody Disenchanted!  Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses join together in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture so they’ve tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth. Disenchanted! left its hilarious mark on the NYC stage with an ‘Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical’ nomination (Outer Critics Circle Awards) and ‘Best New Off-Broadway Musical” nomination (Off Broadway Alliance). Caution: these fairy tales contain adult language and content.
