Players of Utica do add a whole new cast. “Blithe Spirit” takes place at the Players of Utica, 1108 State St, Utica on several dates Feb. 12 through 14 at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 15 at 2 p.m.; and Feb. 19 through 21 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call (315) 724-7624 or visit www.playersofutica.org.

“Blithe Spirit” is an improbable farce about socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’s second marriage with Roth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.

Adam Lawless who stars as Charles Condomine in “Blithe Spirit” answered the most important question about the show:

What would you say to someone whom has never experienced, Blithe Spirit? What could they expect?

“When audiences attend “Blithe Spirit” at Players of Utica this February, they can expect to see a modernized version of Nöel Coward’s classic farce,” cast member Adam Lawless said. “It’s like watching a live-action British sitcom. The antics and situations these characters find themselves in will keep audiences laughing throughout the show. It’s certainly a fun time out at the theatre and just in time for Valentine’s Day!”

The cast of the show consists of:

Hana Meyers – Edith, a maid
Kris Majka – Roth Condomine
Adam J. Lawless – Charles Condomine
Paul Cruskie – Dr. Bradman
Debbie Harrison – Mrs. Bradman
Cathy Mosher – Madame Arcati
Jessica Sherman – Elvira Condomine
