CUMBERLAND — Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit” kicks off a six-performance run at Embassy Theatre Aug. 9.

The psychic accidentally manifests the ghost of Charles’ first wife, Elvira. Only he can see her, much to the distress of his second wife, Ruth,” according to a synopsis of the show provided by the theater.
The play is directed by Jerard Puckett and stars Luann Lancaster, Robert Smith, Danise Whitlock, Lisa Castleman, Fred Robertson, Linda Julien and Faith Jule.
Performances are Aug. 9 and 10 at 8 p.m. and Aug. 11 at 2 p.m.
