Ghost The Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre – Save £26.50

May 27, 2012 

Save £26.50 on tickets to see Ghost The Musical live on stage at the Piccadilly Theatre. But HURRY! This show must end on 6th October 2012.

Why should I see it?

Musicals don’t get much more romantic than Ghost.Especially during its iconic love scene at a potter’s wheel, played out to the strains of Unchained Melodyand made famous in the Oscar-winning film starring Patrick Swayze. So if you want to treat your other half to a date to remember, this is the show to take them to.But what makes Ghost unmissable are its jaw-dropping stage illusions and hi-tech special effects. Characters disappear through doors, fly above the stage and magically vanish before your eyes. You’ve never seen anything like it.

About the show

Based on the Oscar-winning movie, lovebirds Sam and Molly are mugged on their way home one evening, and Sam is murdered on a darkened street.

Trapped in the form of a ghost between this world and the next, Sam tries to communicate with Molly through a (rather hilarious) phony psychic. What unfolds is a funny and moving story about the power of love.
