BY MELANIE BUCK –
There is much excitement in the air as the actors of Bell, Book and Candle, OLT’s next prodution, prepare to bring you a great show.
Bell, Book and Candle stars actors Amanda Stipe as Gillian, Tim Hesse as Shep, Emily Butler-McCoy as Aunt Queenie, Lamar Austin as Nicky, and Scott O’Rear as Sidney Redlitch.
The hit Broadway play, written by Jon Van Druten, not only inspired the making of the 1958 movie version starring Kim Novak and James Stewart but was also the premise for the hit T.V. series, Bewitched.
The play is set during the Christmas season. Gillian Holroyd, a witch and free spirit, has been unlucky in love and restless in life. She admires from afar her neighbor, publisher Shep Henderson, who one day walks into apartment to use the telephone (after Gillian’s Aunt Queenie put a spell on his phone). When she learns he is about to marry an old college enemy of hers, Merle Kittridge, she takes revenge by casting a love spell on him.
This is one show you won’t want to miss! The actors are top-notch, the stage will be like none you’ve seen on OLT’s stage and, not only will there be a live cat on stage, pyrotechnics will be used as well.
Performances will be Friday and Saturday, October 24-25, at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, October 26, at 2 p.m., Friday, October 31, and Saturday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 2, at 2 p.m.
