Opening in just 2 weeks, each member of the cast of CPP's production of Blithe Spirit - a farce by Noel Coward, directed by Frith Harwood - has agreed to answer 5 questions that will help the reader know what to expect when coming to see the play.

First up is a newcomer to City Park Players, Wesley Saunders.  He's a resident of the Pine Prairie area - a graduate of LSU and has been a Librarian for 18 years at Rapides Parish Library. He's married to Sheila Saunders and they have four children. His acting credits include roles in Cemetery Club, Moonlight & Magnolias, Last Night of Ballyhoo and Fiddler on the Roof at the Eunice Community Theatre, Eunice, LA.

                              "No, really, thank you, Violet's quite right I'm afraid.  I have to get up abominably early tomorrow.  I have a patient being operated on in Canterbury."

4. Through your character's eyes - what is Blithe Spirit about?
                                         A fine, young author is transformed in to a nervous wreck and his household upended when a spirit is released.
