CANNON BEACH — Noel Coward’s supernatural comedy “Blithe Spirit” haunts the Coaster Theatre stage weekends through Saturday, Oct. 28.

Socialite and novelist Charles Condomine invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a séance in hopes of gathering material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his temperamental first wife, Elvira.

Elvira attempts to disrupt Charles’s marriage to his current wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost. As the (worldly and unworldly) personalities clash, Charles risks being haunted into perpetuity.

This romantic comedy features North Coast actors and is directed by Edward James. Tickets are $25 or $20 and can be purchased at coastertheatre.com or by calling 503-436-1242.

Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m., Sunday shows at 3 p.m.
