Ghost – the musical set to haunt Glasgow this April
The much awaited arrival of Ghost – the musical is imminent as the hit production prepares to land in Glasgow two weeks from today.
Starring West End starlet Carolyn Maitland as Molly and Hollyoaks’ Andy Moss as Sam, the timeless story of love, despair and hope will run at the King’s from Monday 27 March until Saturday 1 April as part of a UK tour. Taking its inspiration from the classic movie, this innovative reimagining features an expanded book, new music and original staging.
West End musical theatre star Jacqui Dubois who was part of original London cast of Rent and Children of Eden, and also starred in The Lion King, Fela and People, Places and Things plays Oda Mae Brown, the character made famous in the film by Whoopi Goldberg.
Sam Ferriday (Jersey Boys, Blue Man Group, The Prodigals) plays Carl, alongside Leo Sene as Willie, James Earl Adair haunting proceedings as the Hospital Ghost, and Gary Lee Netley as the Subway Ghost. Tarisha Rommick plays Louise and Simbi Akande Clara. Completing the cast is Lori Baker, Ethan Bradshaw, Lauren Drew, Matthew Vinetot, Mike Ward and Kelly Hampson.
The Double Academy Award winning movie was a huge success story, both critically and at the box office, where it was the highest grossing film in the year of its release. It starred the late Patrick Swayze alongside Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn and Whoopi Goldberg with direction from Jerry Zucker. Bruce Joel Rubin's script won the Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won the Oscar® for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. The film's most iconic and moving scene was famously performed to The Righteous Brother's Unchained Melody, which is featured in the musical production.
Walking back to their apartment late one night a tragic encounter sees Sam murdered and his beloved girlfriend Molly alone, in despair and utterly lost. But with the help of a phony storefront psychic, Sam, trapped between this world and the next, tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving her from grave danger. See the musical and experience the wonder of the show for yourself this April.
