AUDIENCES in Bradford will this spring be asked to believe in the power of love.

Ghost the Musical is returning to the Alhambra Theatre for a week from April 30 to May 4.

The show is based on the hugely-popular Oscar-winning movie of the 1990s that captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation.

Ghost was the highest-grossing film in the year of its release, starring the late Patrick Swayze alongside Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg.

Bruce Joel Rubin’s script won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won the Oscar for Best Actress in a supporting role.

The film’s most iconic and moving scene was famously performed to The Righteous Brothers’ Unchained Melody, which also features in the stage version.

Producer Bill Kenwright said: “Ghost is a story full of hope and is one of those films which never leaves you. The book by Bruce Joel Rubin and score by Dave Stewart and Glenn Ballad come together wonderfully.”

Bruce Joel Rubin: “This is a show with such a strong emotional and musical life that it can mould to many visions and interpretations.

“It can be performed on any scale, and its vibrant heart will still captivate an audience and allow the imagination to flourish. It is purely theatrical in the greatest sense.”

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

But with the help of Oda Mae Brown, 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.”
