EACC's Drama classes will present the fall production of The Canterville Ghost on Saturday and Sunday, November 16th and 17th in the EACC Fine Arts Center. The curtain will rise for two separate showings on Saturday, November 16th at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 17th at 2:00 p.m.
The Canterville Ghost play is a fast-paced comedy. An average American family acquires historic old Canterville Chase, complete with a ghost. Sir Simon, the sporting spirit, succeeds in making life miserable until the Americans strike back. Pam and Wendy, daughters of the new owners, attack the poor ghost with cans of hairspray and deodorant. The ghost Sir Simon feels the attacks are very unfair, so he enlists the aid of some friends: Heston the Horrid, Lady Joan the Graveless, the Vampire Duchess, and other things that go bump in the night. Life is hectic and fantastically funny around Canterville Chase until the real solution to the problem of the galloping ghost is discovered.
The production will feature Akielah Hamilton as Jennie, Caitlyn Byrd as Mrs. Umney, Audra Bryan as Lady Canterville, Darius Thomas as Weeds, Makayla Haynes as Pam Ottis, Josie Muñoz as Wendy Otis, Danielle Rowe as Lucy Otis, David Pendergrass as Horace Otis, Amber Austin as Virginia Washington, Monchello Daniel as Sir Simon, Jacob Long as Vicar Damier, Dewayne Moore as Lord Cecil, Dianna Lovell as Mrs. Dampier, Lawson May as Madam Balaklava, Eddie Trim as Martin the Maniac, Chris Heigle as Heston the Horrid, Victoria McClintock as Lady Joan the Graveless, Neysa Pendergrass as Mrs. Midwinter, and Barbara Smith as Mrs. Musgrave.
