Oscar Wilde’s classic tale, “The Canterville Ghost,” will be presented this month at the Woodland Opera House as part of the Theatre for Families series. It is presented by Jennifer Goldman, D.D.S., and Amy Tran, D.D.S.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28-29, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, at the Opera House, 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.

For three centuries, the Canterville ghost has been perfectly happy rattling chains, clanking armor, producing a reappearing blood stain and generally haunting the old English manor house, the Canterville Chase.

The Otis family, Yankee upstarts, purchase the house and insist on paying extra for the ghost. With their quirky ways and modern ideas, the family ends up torturing the ghost. Frightening these nonplussed American tenants proves to be not only infuriating but almost impossible for the temperamental British ghost.

The cast includes David Buse as the Canterville ghost, Emma Black as Virginia Otis, Spencer Alexander as Hiram Otis, Katherine Barksey as Lucretia Otis, Sam Burke as Chip Otis, James Hayakawa as Charlie Otis, Jacob Hopkins as the Duke of Cheshire, Terence O’Flaherty as Lord Canterville and Melanie Woo as Mrs. Umney.

This show is directed by Crissi Cairns Kessler. Costumes are designed by Mary Kessler with the set and lighting design by John Bowles.

Reserved tickets $16 general, $14 for seniors and $8 for children 17 and under. Balcony tickets are $10 general and $5 for children. Discounted group tickets for 10 or more are available.

To purchase tickets, visit www.woodlandoperahouse.org, stop by the box office or call (530) 666-9617.
