Ghost: The Musical, Centre Stage
GHOST THE MUSICAL follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. 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 storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death.

We are proud to announce that Ghost: The Musical is a regional premiere. Centre Stage has accepted this challenge by loading the ensemble and cast with super strong vocalists and many faces we've seen before.
Glenda ManWaring, director, and Laura Nicholas, stage manager, have the biggest challenge balancing the choreography with LOTS of special effects and projections. "This has not been an easy show to pull off," explains Javy Pagan, Development and Marketing Manager.
Michael Cherry choreographer makes sure the stories of each character are told in the choreography as well as the music. For example, Carl’s music might be hard and staccato, while when Molly’s singing, the ensemble is more lyrical and beautiful.

You see the contrast and conflict Sam is having as a ghost, as he wants to talk to the people he loves and can’t. When Sam meets up with Oda Mae it becomes a really big gospel fest. There are four distinct music stories all weaved together with singing on top of each other while still harmonizing. It's truly amazing.
Centre Stage cast this show to make it feel like you're in New York City, with all the different looks and sounds. Diversity is highly regarded and portrayed on the stage "...because everyone’s story is worth being told."
This is going to be a great performance. Don't miss it!
