BLITHE  SEANCE to Play The BOO! Short Play Festival Next Month

EMG Productions has announced that the short play “Blithe Séance” by Eugene M. Grygo is in the Boo! Short Play Festival at The Players Theatre, in the heart of Greenwich Village at 115 MacDougal St., between West 3rd & Bleecker Streets, NYC 10012.

“Blithe Séance” will be performed: Thursday, Oct. 5 @ 7 PM; Friday, Oct. 6 @ 7 PM; Saturday, Oct. 7 @ 7 PM; and Sunday, Oct. 8 @ 3 PM. The festival plays will be performed at the Steve & Marie Sgouros Black Box Theatre on the third floor of the theater complex. There is no elevator.

The Players Theatre Short Play & Musical Festival produces a series of three week festivals, including the Boo! event in October. The organizers of the event want each play to “Scare us or force us to laugh till we die — horror plays and musicals including a great spoof are what this festival is all about!”

Grygo's play takes place in Boston, Halloween 1999. The main character THEO has sold his home in Boston but wants to free it from aggressive ghost RUPERT. THEO employs a psychic-medium JASPER for help. They hold an epic séance and THEO must figuratively and literally wrestle with the demons of his past before he can move forward.

Cast & Crew

Nicholas A. Schommer will play the role of THEO, Jeremy A. Lynch has been cast in the role of RUPERT and Rick Benson will take on the role of JASPER. Rachael Langton will direct this production assisted by Paulina “pau” Tobar who is serving as stage manager.
