A smash comedy hit on London and Broadway stages, this much-revived Noel Coward classic offers up fussy novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted – literally – by the ghost of his late first wife. The clever and insistent Elvira has been called up by a flamboyant and eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, during a seance. In this clash of big personalities (both worldly and un-), Charles must navigate his way between two wives, creating many comical situations to a quite unexpected resolution.
Richmond Hill Players started as a dream of a half dozen people in 1968 when they staged a single production, Molière's "The Miser." The group converted the top floor of an old dairy barn to fit their needs and has never looked back. The recently renovated Barn now approximately 160 per performance in a rare and unique in-the-round environment beneath the original, rustic timbers. Approximately 150 active members are involved on and off-stage each year. Actors, directors, backstage personnel, support staffs, and audience are drawn from a 60-mile radius that includes cities in Illinois and Iowa. Currently, the Players stage all six productions at the Barn in a season running from April through November. RHP prides itself in presenting a wide variety of comedies, dramas, and thrillers that local audiences might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. The group strives to stretch both audiences and participants, seldom hesitating to schedule productions that present casting or technical challenges.
