Volusia County Public Library and the Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach are partnering to stage the premier of an original play, “Outfox”, written and directed by library employee Karen Poulsen. This play is part of the Volusia Reads Together program celebrating the book "Other Birds” by Sarah Addison Allen.

Bakester innkeepers Lillian and Bramwell run out of ideas to attract guests to stay at their establishment – that is, until they come up with a story about ghost sightings. A couple of sisters take the bait and try to summon spirits. Does it work? How could it, if ghosts aren’t real...or are they? 

This comedy, set in the late 1890s, is sure to bring some interesting characters to life! The play is supported by many volunteers and features very talented local performers and production team members: Dennis Amaral, Danielle Grau, Corie Orzel, Valerie Orzel, Gretchen Pettigrew, Louise Schneberger, and Mitzi Sparks. 

Performances are free and open to the public for general seating. This play is intended for adult audiences. No reservations are required. The Port Orange Regional Library, 1005 City Center Circle, performances are at 7 p.m. Friday, March 8, and 2 p.m. Saturday, March 9. The Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach, 726 Third Ave. performances are 7:30 p.m. March 13, 14, 15 and 16, and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 17.
