Ghost the Musical

Ghost the Musical is returning to stages across the UK with a new tour!

The stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning movie will begin performances later in 2024.

First dates have been confirmed, starting at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre in August. The tour will then visit Sunderland, Liverpool, Bournemouth, Darlington, Cheltenham, Leicester, Torquay, Coventry, Bradford, Aberdeen, Stoke, Bath and Blackpool this year.

Further dates through 2025 to be announced.

Walking back to their apartment late one night, a tragic encounter sees Sam murdered and his girlfriend Molly alone, in despair and utterly lost. 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…

Ghost has emerged as one of the most significant hits in cinema history. Featuring the late Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg, it topped the box office in 1990 and secured an Oscar for screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, who has transformed his screenplay into a musical.

This global sensation is making a comeback on stage, showcasing The Righteous Brothers’ Unchained Melody among several songs co-composed by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart.

Ghost the musical premiered in Manchester in 2011 before transferring to the West End and later Broadway. Caissie Levy and Richard Fleeshman starred in the original productions both in the UK and in New York.
