Michigan City High School Theatre Department presents “Ghost the Musical”

MICHIGAN CITY — Adapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Bruce Joel Rubin, "Ghost: The Musical" 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 realized. 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. "Ghost: The Musical" builds comedy, suspense, and deeply felt emotion to an ethereal climax that audiences will never forget.

Ticket prices are $5 for students/children and $10 for adults. The musical will be performed at Michigan City High School, 8466 W Pahs Road, at the following times and dates:

• Friday, Nov. 15,  7-9:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

"An Evening of One Acts" at Marquette

MICHIGAN CITY — "An Evening of One Acts" weaves two stories into one for the Marquette Drama Department.

"Whodunit?" features a cast of larger-than-life characters involved in a murder mystery.

The audience will take note of some stereotypical characters: a butler (did he do it?), a wonderful, wacky announcer, Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes-type characters. And there's plenty of humor in "Whodunit?" – considered a blend of comedy and thriller.

"Who Am I This Time?" is best characterized as a play within a play. Bland, mundane individuals burst into life as they audition for roles in a small-town theater production.

 

And both will be directed by Marquette students Caitie Gately and Zoe Olesker.

While the length of "An Evening of One Acts" is shorter than previous Drama Department shows, the quality is unaffected, organizers said.

The play will be performed at the Rudy Hart Theatre at Marquette Catholic High School, 306 W. 10th St.

Opening night of "An Evening of One Acts" is Friday at 7 p.m. with additional showings on Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults; and $4 for students and seniors.
