Blithe Spirit

Blithe Spirit

By Noël Coward

April 29,30 May 6,7,8 13,14 20,21,22 2016
(Preview April 28 & Matinees May 8 & 22)

Blithe Spirit is Noël Coward's beloved comic masterpiece. It concerns Charles Condomine, successful author and country gentleman, who unwittingly wreaks havoc when he invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house for the purpose of conducting a séance to gather material for his next book. His bewitching and beguiling first wife, Elvira, returns from "the other side" and promptly makes every attempt to woo back Charles. Elvira can only be seen and heard by Charles and it drives his present wife, Ruth, to distraction. Mayhem ensues.

Directed by Katherine Almquist
Featuring: Lauren Hoag, Kit Colbourn, Michael Wright, Steve Stott, Lynn Nissenbaum, Patricia Michael, Gillian Previn

The Ole Sherman Opry

February 19, 2016, 8:00pm

Sherman Playhouse

On February, 19th, beginning at 8:00 pm, the Sherman Playhouse will be host to a special event, The Ole Sherman Opry. It will be a fun, entertaining concert performed by local musicians and singer songwriters, many of whom call Sherman their home. The Ole Sherman Opry is a fundraiser for our town’s historic Sherman Playhouse, and all of the proceeds will go to support the playhouse and the good work of the Sherman Players in their efforts to bring great live theater to our town. The concert will be based loosely on the concept of an old time live radio show, the goal being to bring an evening of down home, local entertainment to our corner of Connecticut.” Join us in helping to support the Sherman Playhouse while having a rousing good time. For more information and to reserve tickets, please contact the Sherman Players at 860-354-3622.

The Sherman Players are seeking three male actors 20’s to 50’s for the roles of

Moliere’s TARTUFFE
Translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur

Directed by Paul J. Tines

Tartuffe is one of Moliere’s most masterful and most popular plays. Its central character is a rich bourgeois named Orgon, who in middle age has become a bigot and prude. By affecting sanctity, Tartuffe, a wily opportunist and swindler, gains complete ascendancy over Orgon, who not only makes over his fortune but offers his daughter in marriage to his “spiritual” master. Only when he actually witnesses Tartuffe’s attempt to seduce his wife does Orgon come to his senses.

Time period: 1660s

Character Breakdown

ORGON: The central character who comes under the influence of the hypocrite Tartuffe.
Age range: 40 - 50

CLÉANTE: Orgon's brother-in-law who tries to get everyone to view things with calm and reason. Age range: 20 - 50

DAMIS: Orgon's son and Elmire's stepson who tries to prove Tartuffe a hypocrite and succeeds only in having himself disinherited. Age range: 20 - 30

Paul J. Tines is new to Sherman and is a most exciting director. It was fascinating to watch him at the first auditions in December, he is a creative dynamo! He knows exactly what he wants and how to achieve it and, even at the audition, he was shaping the dialogue and the scenes and coming up with some hilarious and sometime quite bawdy staging! As one actor put it, the whole experience was exhilarating!
