    Don’t be surprised if the lights go out during East Central University’s production of “Blithe Spirit.” 

    It’s about a ghost, after all. It’s also a Noel Coward comedy and it will be staged in the intimate Chalmers Herman Theatre where the spooky action could be just inches from the audience.

    Director Ruth Richardson, facility coordinator for the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center which houses the Chalmers Herman Theatre, is planning “ghostly type things” for the production, which will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday [OCT. 6-8].
