The love story between Molly and Sam, known more familiarly as the Academy Award winning movie, GHOST, will take the Hobby Center stage with the musical by the same name from February 18-23.

The supernatural power of love told in GHOST THE MUSICAL is directed by Tony Award winner, Matthew Warchus and choreographed by Ashley Wallen in the first U.S. National Tour.

Over 1 million people worldwide have enjoyed GHOST THE MUSICAL, and it has been nominated for numerous awards including five Olivier Awards and three Tony® Awards. The Associated Press calls GHOST THE MUSICAL “Eye-poppingly brilliant” while Variety assures the audience will experience “A limitless array of dazzling effects.”

GHOST THE MUSCIAL brings special effects never before seen in an on-stage musical and features illusions that reportedly leave audiences questioning if what they just saw was real. Sam, as a ghost, walks through a solid door. Inanimate objects take on a life of their own. Spirits ascend to the heavens, subway passengers are thrown in the air during a high speed train ride and people disappear and reappear right before your eyes.

Nominated for an Academy® Award for Best Film in 1990, GHOST became a blockbuster hit and an instant classic, winning numerous awards worldwide. The film starred Houstonian Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn and Whoopi Goldberg and was directed by Jerry Zucker. Bruce Joel Rubin’s script won an Academy® Award for Best Original Screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won the Academy® Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her portrayal of psychic Oda Mae Brown.
