Audiences loved the Vagabond Players production of this romantic comedy full of whimsical fun and a lively ghost!
When Timothy Grey quits his job to write a book about one of the Royal City’s forefathers, his friend, Conrad, finds an unorthodox way to ensure that the historic details are correct. With the help of a psychic seamstress, Conrad restores the resident ghost and sets off a chain of events that turns history upside down. Add in a glamorous fiancée, a cranky landlord, a pizza-delivery man, and a pretty librarian from the downstairs suite, and the result is a charming comedy filled with romance and high spirits.
Written and directed by playwright and mystery author, Elizabeth Elwood, Body and Soul’s premiere cast included Alex Ross as the struggling writer, Heather Evens as the fiancée who disapproves of his new way of life, and Tracy Labrosse as the librarian who has a lot more going for her than a knowledge of musty old books.
Jeremy Heynen and Alison Main-Tourneur took the roles of Conrad, the technical whizz, and Tibby, the psychic, who between them, restore Mary Fairfax, the resident ghost – played with delicious wickedness by Jacqollyne Keath.
The cast was rounded out by Kurtis Maguire as the cranky landlord, and Mike Parker as Ernie, the pizza-delivery man. The show was stage managed by Rob Larsen.
