‘simply out of this world’

The Musical phenomenon direct from the west end

The Sun

★★★★★

‘JAW-DROPPINGLY AMAZING’ Manchester Evening News Direct from the West End, the smash-hit musical Ghost comes to Wimbledon for two weeks only this Spring. Based on the phenomenal Oscar-winning movie that captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation back in the 90s, Ghost is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next trying to communicate with girlfriend Molly through a phoney psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer. Adapted for the stage by Bruce Joel Rubin from his own Oscarwinning screenplay for the film, the amazing special effects and dazzling staging are by the multi award-winning Paul Kieve (Inner Magic Circle member) and Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus. With a score by rock legends and Grammy award winners, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson and Alanis Morrisette), and featuring the unforgettable Unchained Melody, Ghost is a rollercoaster ride of romance and comedy with dazzling state-of-the-art staging.

Inspired by the smash hit multi-million selling albums Dreamboats and Petticoats One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six, the West End sell-out sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical features some of the greatest hit songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era. The dazzling success of the first four albums in the Dreamboats and Petticoats series sent the message loud and clear. With over 2 million copies sold and several weeks at the Number One spot in the compilation charts, the Great British public were saying that they didn’t just want to listen to pure nostalgia: they’d love to see it as well. In 1961 emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue! But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons. Featuring classic tracks from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and many more hits from music’s golden era including To Know Him Is To Love Him, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Great Pretender and C’mon Everybody.
