Ghost The Musical— SYNOPSIS
Adapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Bruce Joel Rubin, Suffolk Young People’s Theatre bring you GHOST THE MUSICAL, which follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. The bond of love transcends the boundaries of life itself to grow stronger and more fully realised. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death.
