NELSON'S ORIGINAL AWARD WINNING YOUTH THEATRE COMPANY
GHOST THE MUSICAL is a new musical and will be the New Zealand Premiere and will perform during the last week of term 1 from Monday 8th to Saturday 13th April. Several people have reported how beautiful the music is, and of course it's a wonderfully entertaining love story full of drama and suspense. If you don't know it, watch the movie starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.
