CHAMBERSBURG – Chambersburg Community Theatre (CCT) opens its 63rd season next month with "The Univited."

The show opens Friday, September 9, and runs through September 18, with 7:30 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday matinees at the Capitol Theatre, 159 S Main St., Chambersburg.

Directed by Tom Amick and written by Tim Kelly, "The Uninvited" is based on the novel by Dorothy Macardle.  A brother and sister from London purchase a surprisingly affordable, lonely cliff-top house overlooking the Irish Sea, only to discover that it actually carries a ghostly price. Soon they are caught up in a bizarre romantic triangle from beyond the grave. A tragic family past, a mysteriously locked room, cold chills, bumps in the night - this Gothic classic has it all.

The cast for "The Uninvited"includes Brent Blair and Nickey Sanders as Roddy and Pam Fitzgerald, the siblings who purchase the house. Madison Plausky will play Stella Meredith, whose family had previously lived in the house, and W. Andrew Stover will play her grandfather, Commander Brooke. Lizzie Flynn, the Fitzgerald’s housekeeper, will be played by Bonnee Wendle, and the nosy neighbor, Mrs. Jessup, will be played by Patti Hann. Other cast members include Bex Etter as Wendy and Bruce Kloster as Max Hilliard (friends of the Fitzgeralds), Roy Summers as Dr. Scott and Deb Millhouse as Miss Holloway, Stella’s former nurse.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $13 for students 13 through college, and $8 for children age 3-12. An additional $2 per ticket Capitol Theatre service fee will apply. Tickets can be purchased online at or by stopping at, or calling, the Capitol Theatre Box Office at 717-263-0202, ext. 0. The box office is open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and one hour before each performance. Group discounts are also available.
