The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival (FLMTF) continues its 2017 season with the movie blockbuster turned musical-comedy, Ghost The Musical. The show runs August 30 through September 16 at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Emerson Park.
Based on the iconic 1990 movie, Ghost The Musical is brought to life on stage in a clever, funny, suspenseful, romantic love story for the whole family. Sam and Molly are moving into their new New York City loft when Sam is killed by a street thug. He finds himself trapped between worlds, but with a newly discovered power to communicate through select people. However, when Sam discovers the true circumstances of his death, it's a race against the clock to save his sweetheart from the same fate. Book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin and music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
