Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), North Fulton's only professional theatre company, opens its 24th Season with the Southeastern premiere of Ghost The Musical at the Theatre's home in the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. Performances have limited run dates for three weeks only from September 15th through October 2nd, 2016, Wednesdays through Sundays. GET's Co-founder and Artistic Director Robert Farley will direct the production. Sponsor for this blockbuster show is longtime GET corporate partner, Macy's.

Director Bob Farley says of the production, "I am so happy to be bringing to Georgia Ensemble Theatre the Southeastern premiere of a brand new re-imagining of this beautiful musical since its Broadway incarnation with an outstanding ensemble of players and brand new, all-acoustic orchestrations. Ghost is one of the most romantic and memorable stories ever written. You will laugh, cry, and experience a roller coaster of song and excitement that is Ghost the Musical. "

With book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin (based on his film), audiences will revel in this new version of the musical, a timeless fantasy about the power of love. As in the 1990 film, you can't help but be drawn in by the romance, the comedy, and the suspense of this story of two young lovers, Sam and Molly. Torn apart by a tragic crime, psychic Oda Mae Brown facilitates Sam's journey back from death to help solve his own murder. The story is brought to life with music and lyrics by Dave Stewart (The Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson's Thriller)
