Not sure what to do this weekend? Try a couple of these activities to liven things up a bit!

blithe“Blithe Spirit” performed by the Second Street Players

From Second Street Player’s Website: “The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantakerous 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 un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

Riverfront Theater is located at 2 S. Walnut St. in downtown Milford. Enjoy the play Fridays, Sept. 9 & 16 at 8 p.m., Saturdays, Sept. 10 & 17 at 8 p.m. and Sundays, Sept. 11 & 18 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased at brownpapertickets.com or by calling the box office at 800-838-3006.
