Casper The Friendly Ghost comes alive on the stage!

A Steven Spielburg movie and top rating television series to his name, Casper, the friendly ghost all children love now makes a spirited debut into the London Theatre scene, with a multi-talented cast in a high-tech, all singing, all dancing musical, with special effects to die for!
Living in a crumbling New York mansion with his uncles and a cellar full of his slightly unusual friends, Casper's life is rudely interrupted by the arrival of some property developers who have to solicit the aid of the ghostbusters when they realise that they are up against a problem that can't be solved by the usual means!
The battle for possession of the property between it's ghostly inhabitants and those intent on displacing them makes for a very funny, highly spectacular and only "pretend" frightening musical, which can be enjoyed by children of all ages. It will certainly provide a boost to your spirits.
