Centre Stage to Present GHOST THE MUSICAL this Fall
Adapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Bruce Joel Rubin Ghost: The Musical is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. The story follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam's untimely death. Walking back to their apartment one night, they are mugged, leaving Sam murdered on a dark street. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a phony, storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, made famous by Whoopi Goldberg. Together, Sam and Oda Mae defy the laws of death in the hopes of saving and protecting Molly.
With a cast perfected by Director Glenda ManWaring, incredible vocals led by Andre Webb, and beautifully strong choreography by Michael Cherry, Ghost: The Musical features music by Grammy Award winner, Glen Ballard and Eurythmics producer, Dave Stewart.
