GHOST THE MUSICAL (UK Tour) Ghost Is Dancing for Children In Need

Mayflower Theatre -  Southampton
Sunday 3 November 6.00pm
‘when the wig girls learned to Waltz’

For the last 5 months 12 terrified technicians from the Ghost The Musical touring company have been taught to dance by 12 professional dancers from the cast all in aid of the BBC’s Children in Need Appeal.

On Sunday 3rd November they will demonstrate their skills in front of a panel of Judges as part of a Grand Charity fund raising Gala. With a Star Cabaret, Charity auction and lots of surprises this is the one Charity event of the year that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Neil White, Ghost Company Manager said, “From what started as an idea to raise money mentioned between the cast in crew in the quick change room during the performance one night in Edinburgh, has escalated into Dance fever with the touring company. Apart from raising money for Children in Need it really has made the bond between our touring cast and crew tighter. Everyone has been so committed into giving their all, fitting training whenever they can around the busy schedule of moving such a massive technical show. We just hope that everyone will have as much fun watching the evening as we have had rehearsing it and most importantly we raise money for such an amazing charity”.

Below is a message of support from the movie's original Oda Mae Brown, WHOOPI GOLDBERG who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in the role. 

Michael Ockwell, Mayflower Theatre Chief Executive added, “This event is a wonderful idea, I am so pleased that we can help raise money for Children in Need by offering our venue and facilities. It will be a wonderful event for a very worthy cause and our staff are looking forward to uniting with the touring company of Ghost to provide a great nights entertainment.”

Rehearsals for a group performance were well under way in August, fitted in and around the schedule of Ghost performances! Watch a short video below:
