A refreshingly strong turn from Rebekah Lowings ensures that the latest touring production of Ghost The Musical is alive and vibrant at the Festival Theatre, despite the show’s cloying sentimentality.
Heart-wrenchingly emotional and beautifully presented, this touring production of Ghost captures the spirit of the film.
Niall Sheehy, Rebekah Lowings & Jacqui DuBois – the stars of the Ghost The Musical – based on the Oscar-winning film, chat about bringing the iconic story to the stage.
Knights of the Rose comes from a female team of director and choreographer Racky Plews and writer Jennifer Marsden but it is a masculine tale of Knights of the realm and their fair maidens.
