Photo Flash: Granite Theatre Stages BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE

Book and Candle" a romantic comedy by John Van Druten is opening October 12 at the Granite Theatre. Producer/ Artistic Director for the theatre is David Jepson. The show runs October 12 - 28, 2018.

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a number of difficulties. Ultimately, the lady breaks off with her companions in witchery, preferring the normal and human love offered her by the attractive publisher. But before the happy conclusion of the romance, Gillian comes very near to losing him-but doesn't. One of the author's greatest comedy successes. An outstanding and popular title among community theaters.

Anna Convery (Westerly, RI) directs. The cast Ricci Mann (Cranston, RI), Brian Olsen (Westerly, RI), Beth Jepson (Westerly, RI), Warren Usey (Westerly, RI), David Jepson (Westerly, RI) and Clemmie (Westerly, RI)
