While this show is completely suitable for children, as far as content is concerned, the length of the show and particular style of the comedy is better suited to adults. We recommend this show for ages 12 and up.

The first show produced by SLO Little Theatre in 1948 makes its first appearance at SLO REP!
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. Properly restrained British hilarity ensues.
What? The Bar is closed? Thank you for your patience during this production while our bar is partially closed. Soft drinks, Pellegrino, coffee and water are still available, but we cannot offer wine and beer at this time. Why? We are in the process of applying for a permanent liquor license with the State of California. Part of that process involves halting all alcohol service and sales at the theatre for at least six weeks. Once we are approved for our new, permanent, and much more affordable license, we will reopen and be able to serve YOU, our valued theatre patrons better! In the meantime… if you’d like a pre-show glass of wine or a beer, you can enjoy happy hour at one of our great downtown restaurants and bars. Check out our Restaurant Guide for some excellent recommendations for downtown bars and restaurants!
Blithe Spirit will run approximately two and a half hours including one 15 minute intermission.
