The show stars Rob Mills as Sam Wheat and Jemma Rix as Molly Jensen, the role played by Demi Moore in the classic film.

Set in modern day New York City, Ghost The Musical is a timeless fantasy about the power of love.

Walking back to their apartment one night after a romantic dinner, Sam and Molly are mugged, leaving Sam dead on a dark street.

Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and unable to leave Molly, whom he learns is in grave danger.

With the help of Oda Mae, a phony storefront psychic, Sam tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving and protecting her.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Film in 1990, Ghost became a blockbuster hit and an instant classic, winning numerous awards worldwide.

Ghost was nominated for an Academy Award for best film in 1990, Bruce Joel Rubin’s script won the Oscar for best original screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won for best actress in a supporting role.

Ghost The Musical is directed by Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus, who most recently brought Matilda to the stage in Australia, and choreographed by Ashley Wallen (The X Factor).

Illusions are created by leading stage and film illusionist Paul Kieve (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban): Sam, as a ghost, walks through a solid door; inanimate objects take on a life of their own while spirits ascend to the heavens; subway passengers are thrown in the air; and people disappear and reappear right before your eyes.

The musical features original music and lyrics by Grammy Award winners Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror), and also includes the iconic song Unchained Melody.
